RARE OLD AUTO CLUB MAP TEACHES HOW THE MUSEUM CATALOGUES ITS ACQUISITIONS

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Several volunteers from California State University Northridge will be working in the next few weeks on projects for The Museum of the San Fernando Valley. To those who are working on The Museum's archives, I thought it might be useful to demonstrate through this recent donation how our present record keeping is done. This will also show followers of this blog a important addition to our collection as well as our record keeping process.
