About the Project

Preserving Tijuana’s Culturo-Historical Archives
Project Grant

The San Diego State University (SDSU) Sage Project and University Library will collaborate with Tijuana’s Instituto Municipal de Arte y Cultura (IMAC) to organize, inventory and digitize materials from the Archivo Histórico de Tijuana, located at IMAC. The archives include VHS and CD video recordings, audiocassette tapes, vinyl records, photographs, and other documents dating back to the late 19th century, with the majority dating from the 1950s onward. These rare materials record Tijuana’s history, documenting images of people, buildings, political activism and public events, as well as documents from the City’s administrative office (Oficialía Mayor).
