Caring for Community Collections: Insights from Working with the Seizo Oka Collection at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California

By

In 2019, the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC) began digitizing a rare collection of records that documents the lives of Issei (first-generation Japanese Americans) in San Francisco. This initiative not only marked the opening of the community’s access to these fragile records, but also launched a major renovation effort to the JCCCNC’s archival space. Since then, the JCCCNC has worked hard to re-envision their archives and prepare these materials with the local community in mind.
