A Plethora of New Images

The Sonoma Heritage Collections now includes an additional 6,000 images formerly found only in the Library’s online catalog. This group was the largest remaining set awaiting migration to the SHC. When I processed the initial batch of nearly 18,000 images, I set aside all the problematic records — mostly because of the lack of topical headings.  The bulk of the new set can be found in the Sonoma County Library Photograph Collection, with significant additions to the Sonoma County Historical Society Collection and Sonoma County Library Postcard Collection as well. While the total number of images in the SHC is now approaching 25,000, I still have many more to add — we have over 40,000 images in our collections alone and another 6,000 from one of our partners (currently in process).
