ONE Archives Collection at the USC Libraries

The ONE Archives Collection at the USC Libraries has launched a new online exhibit entitled Safer at Home, in which objects from the past will hopefully “mirror” our present times. A new archival piece will be added each week with comment and contextualization, effectively creating and developing an exhibition in real time.
“Visual culture acts as a lens to examine historical moments as well as the present. Images are deeply rooted in their own particular time, but, as objects, they exist and make meaning in the present. It is the hope that this collection of images serves as a connection to a previous history and as a tool to help us better understand and parse the present moment.”
