UCSB is involved in a project to digitize, preserve, and store historic minute books of the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors dating back to 1850. Once the handwritten ledgers are digitized, they will be housed in UCSB Library’s Special Research Collections, where they will be publicly available. To help bring awareness to the project and to our county history, a selection of the original books are now on display at the Channing Peake Gallery downtown at the County Administration Building. UCSB graduate students have been involved in curating this exhibition. It will be on display through Sept. 18, 2015. The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
