DMG CD 98-001
California Gold Mines
A Sesquicentennial Photograph Collection

In 1998, CGS selected, scanned, and researched 300 black and white photographs of California gold mines from our photograph collection. The photographs on the CD-ROM date from 1852 to 1984. Photograph subjects include gold mines, miners, mining techniques and equipment. Users may easily search by mine name, county, photographer, subject and year, or by clicking on a map of California counties. Other features include, a "slide show," an article on California Gold Discovery, a California historic gold mines map, printing capability, and a glossary of mining terms.

This CD-ROM was supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act administered in California by the State Librarian. This funding also permitted California public libraries and complete California state depository libraries to receive free copies of the CD-ROM.
