The Los Angeles Aqueduct Digital Platform—a joint project of UCLA Library and the Metabolic Studio—is working with other archival repositories to digitize, aggregate, and curate the documentary records of the aqueduct’s construction and history. The new digital platform coincides with the centennial of the aqueduct and makes these vital historical sources readily accessible to scholars, students, and citizens, facilitating the creation of new narratives about the past, present, and future of the aqueduct.
