In 2007, the LMU Library’s Department of Archives & Special
Collections was awarded a grant as part of the Local History Digital
Resources Project (LHDRP), supported by the infrastructure of the
California Digital Library (CDL) and Califa through Library Services and
Technology Act (LSTA) grant funding administered by the California State
Library (CSL). This grant funded the digitization of 200 postcards from
the Werner Von Boltenstern postcard collection, and laid the groundwork
for the Digital Library program.
