Re/Collecting Project Archive


The Re/Collecting Project (Re/Co for short) is an 'ethnic studies memory project of California's Central Coast.' The project's aim is to digitally capture and make publicly accessible the rich history of the diverse - yet under-documented - communities of the region, which includes San Luis Obispo and northern Santa Barbara counties. To collect the materials that make up these histories, the project would organize 'Re/Collecting Days', and make house calls, where the project team would invite families and individuals to recollect their stories as well as to participate in collecting their story materials (images, documents, mementos) for digital preservation and access. The digital collection available on this site is only a selection of the Re/Collecting Project Archive. Learn more about the archive at: https://oac.cdlib.org/findaid/ark:/13030/c8qc09ph/
