Accessing the Past: Digital History Collaborative

Accessing the Past Digital History Collaborative (APDHC) is a cooperative partnership with the Palm Springs Public Library, the City of Palm Springs, the California State Library, and other community partners. Together we are making our historic collections digitally available to anyone, anywhere in the world, and connecting people to information.

Accessing the Past contains digitized collections of numerous resources including The Desert Sun (spanning years 1934-1978; not all issues are currently available).
