The digitization of 5,000 personal writings, photographs, poetry, artwork, organizational records, and audiovisual recordings dealing with Japanese internment during World War II and Japanese American experiences more broadly, along with the transcription of 75 oral histories and digitization and transcription of 500 internment camp publications.

A consortium of California State University archives requests support for an Implementation project for the digitization of documents concerning the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. This proposal to digitize the extensive holdings of Japanese American materials in 15 CSU archives consists of four major steps: digitizing the materials, creating descriptive metadata for 5000+ digital objects, creating access through the project portal for online discoverability, and contextualizing the objects with website enhancements. With the assistance of the archivists, associated staff, and consultants, this project will greatly enhance the existing beta-website ( where all of the digital files and associated metadata are centralized. As a result of the NEH Foundations grant, the project plan has been vetted and formulated through onsite visits to seven campus archives, a two-day scholar's symposium, meetings, conference calls, and assessment activities.
