Japanese American Relocation Digital Archive (JARDA)

Few events have as dramatically affected the lives of Japanese Americans in the 20th century as the issuance of Executive Order #9066 that resulted in their internment during World War II. The experience of Japanese Americans in internment camps during the war is richly documented in the holdings of a number of California repositories -- notably the California Historical Society (CHS); California State Archive (CSA); California State University, Fullerton; the Japanese American National Museum (JANM); UC Berkeley's Bancroft Library; UCLA's Young Research Library Department of Special Collections; University of the Pacific (UOP); and University of Southern California (USC) -- all members of the California Digital Library's (CDL) Online Archive of California (OAC).

JARDA is a digital "thematic collection" within the CDL's OAC documenting the experience of Japanese Americans in World War II internment camps. Curators from the eight participating OAC members selected a broad range of primary sources to be digitized, including: photographs, documents, manuscripts, paintings, drawings, letters, and oral histories. Over 10,000 digital images have been created complimented by 20,000 pages of electronic transcriptions of document and oral histories. Access to the digital content will be provided through USMARC catalog records in MELVYL (the UC online union catalog) and by Encoded Archival Description (EAD) finding aids in the OAC. Electronic texts have been marked up according to the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) standard.
