      Friends of California Archives Speaker Series with Axel Borg and Jullianne Ballou

      Join us on Thursday, November 7th for  A History of Wine and Winemaking in California Join us as we mark harvest season as well as Archives Month with a discussion by wine and food science bibliographer and librarian Axel Borg and archivist Jullianne Ballou, both of UC-Davis, on the history of wine and winemaking in California. About This EventThe backstory of wine in California is to be found in the archives of individuals, corporations and government agencies. Most people, when they think of wine, have visions of Napa and Sonoma vineyards, of people sipping glasses of Cabernet or Chardonnay with friends and family. But wine is big business and wine is a controlled beverage. The government -- local, state and Federal -- taxes and regulates the industry, and because of this, finding the backstory of wine involves the California State Archives. UC Davis has the finest grape and wine library in the world and has archival collections to complement the print library. The proximity of these two archives, Davis and Sacramento, provides the wine researcher with a great opportunity. So, what are some of those complimentary archives held between these two archival collections? This is the topic of Wine in the Archives. About Our SpeakersAxel Borg, a subject specialist librarian in the Research Support Services department at UC-Davis's Shields Library, has served as the Library's Post Harvest Subject Bibliographer for nearly three decades; he has also worked as a librarian at UC-Berkeley and UC-Santa Cruz. Along with Post Harvest Agriculture, his other subject specialties include viticulture and enology; food science and nutrition; general agriculture; microbiology; and plant sciences, plant biology, and plant pathology. He has curated research guides and written blog posts on these and related topics, and is the recipient of the UC Davis Academic Federation James H. Meyer Distinguished Achievement Award and the UC Davis faculty Charles P. Nash Prize. Jullianne Ballou is the Warren Winiarski Wine Writer Collection Fellow at UC-Davis Shields Library's Special Collections department, providing access to the university's wine writer collections for research, teaching, and general exploration. She also supports the collection’s growth and reach through acquisitions, events, exhibitions, and digital collections. Prior to joining the library, she was a Project Librarian at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, where she worked with documents ranging from 16th-century maps to original drafts of Gabriel García Márquez’s novel One Hundred Years of Solitude.
