Guest Moira Conlan talks about her work as Yolo County Library Archivist . Listen in to find out about the Yolo County Library Catalog, the California Digital Library, why Yolo is called Yolo, and why records about families in Illinois are being archived in Yolo County! From the Yolo County website: "One of the most valuable resources in Yolo County is the Archives and Records Center which provides an important look into the past. The Records Center contains county documents that need to be held for prescribed periods of time, while the Archives consist of a variety of permanent documents dating back to the county’s beginnings in February, 1850. The Archives is not just a place to hold documents; it is a resource for county departments, historians, authors, land owners, school children, and anyone else with a need or desire to learn more about Yolo County’s rich history.
