The Bancroft Library is pleased to announce the publication of the Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study Digital Archive: http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/collections/jais/
The result of a two-year digitization project generously funded by the National Park Service as part of the Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program, the digital archive makes available nearly 100,000 original manuscript items from The Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study initiated in 1942 at the University of California, Berkeley. This research project sought to document the mass internment of Japanese Americans by embedding Nisei social science students recruited from the Berkeley campus into selected internment sites.
The Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study Digital Archive website provides access to this massive collection of research materials through various means, including textual searches and browsing options, visual mechanisms such as GIS tagging and interactive maps, a timeline, and pointers to related resources. The collection comprises daily journals, field reports, life histories, extensive correspondence between staff, evacuees, and others, and secondary research materials collected and compiled by the research staff.
The Bancroft Library Reading Room is CLOSED from December 21st to January 5th.
