FAQ

Where is the Welga Project located?

The Welga Project was originally located at the University of California, Davis Asian American Studies Department. The end of the funding phase and the shortage of physical storage space resulted in the Welga Project operating solely in the cloud.

Will there be more collections added to the archive?

Project archivist Allan Jason Sarmiento is actively processing and digitizing collections. As the project progresses, more items will be added to the digital archive. 

I am interested in donating materials. What types of items do you accept?

We accept documents (correspondence, memoirs, administrative files), publications (newspaper clippings, journal articles, flyers), photographs, and artifacts.

I have scanned copies of old photographs and documents. Would you accept digital copies?

Due to a shortage of physical storage, we are only capable of accepting digital reproduction of personal materials. To send digital copies, please email them to ajsarmiento@ucdavis.edu with the subject heading “Digital donation.”
