Hosted by L.A. as Subject (an association of archives and collections hosted by the USC Libraries) the Archives Bazaar is like Disneyland for local history buffs. University libraries from all over SoCal will have exhibits at the bazaar and there's a full day of lectures and panels on L.A. history scheduled too. Be sure to bring down some stuff from the attic, because experts from Los Angeles Preservation Network will be there all day to assess documents and photographs (and digitize them for you too) in the style of Antiques Roadshow.
This Saturday, October 12, 2013; 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.; Doheny Memorial Library; USC University Park Campus. Free to attend. More info here.
