Calisphere — share your University of California-created web sites with us

By Rosalie Lack, CDL Digital Special Collections Director

Do you have a web site you’d like to share that has been created by a UC campus faculty member, librarian, or researcher?  Would you like to raise the visibility of a web site you’ve created?  Is it an online exhibit, curated collection, or thematically-based grouping of materials?  Does the web site feature resources such as photographs, maps, historical documents, current articles and research, multimedia, electronic books, or other online resources?

Let us know!  We’d like to add it to Calisphere.

Calisphere, managed by the California Digital Library (CDL), provides public access to primary source materials and freely available UC-created web sites. Calisphere offers more than 150,000 digitized items—including photographs, documents, newspaper pages, political cartoons, works of art, diaries, transcribed oral histories, advertising, and other unique cultural artifacts—selected from the libraries, archives and museums of the UC campuses, and from cultural heritage organizations across California.  Calisphere is also a gateway to UC-created web sites that reflect the diverse interests and scholarship of UC, including the humanities, social sciences, math, and science resources.  To date, we have published citations to over 500 websites—and we’d like your help to expand our registry.

Who uses Calisphere?
Calisphere is freely available to the public and is used by a broad range of users including UC students, K-12 educators and the general public.  By including UC sites in Calisphere, we increase their visibility and make them more broadly available.
