ROCKLIN, March 26, 2012 - The Sierra College Press has published an electronic journal entitled "Museums of the Sierra Nevada." This eJournal is the latest edition of The Journal of the Sierra College Natural History Museum.

The newest edition of the eJournal presents a directory of museums, libraries, and other cultural and historical organizations throughout the Sierra Nevada region. Nearly 200 institutions are listed. The directory covers seventeen California counties and three counties in Nevada that border California. Also included is Sacramento County as it is the home of many museums that examine the Sierra Nevada. The directory includes a short description of the venue or organization as well as contact information. For each county there is a video photo gallery presenting photos of the museums and other institutions listed. This is the first updated museum directory for the Sierra Nevada in many years.

The Directory features a special section highlighting the Sierra College Natural History Museum.

The Journal of the Sierra College Natural History Museum has been published twice annually since 2008 and focuses on regional natural history, particularly within the 3200 square mile Sierra Community College District, which stretches from the Sacramento Valley to Lake Tahoe. The journal is a publication of the Sierra College Press and is edited by Keely Carroll and Jennifer Skillen, Sierra College Professors of Biological Sciences. The journal can be found online at www.jscnhm.org or through the college website at www.sierracollege.edu/press

Previous editions of this journal may be accessed as well as the other electronic journal published by the Sierra College Press. This journal is Snowy Range Reflections: A Journal of Sierra Nevada History and Biography (www.jsnhb.org)
