We will shortly be starting to post announcements for new arrivals and newly available collections. We will include some brief comments about the collections as well as links to the NWDA finding aids available online.
New arrivals = New collections for the department. These announcements may include summary information about new collections. When available a link to an NWDA finding aid will be included.
Newly available collections = Collections that have a new NWDA finding aid. Many times these collections have been in SCUA for years with little known about them by users. These collections have been available for research, but access was limited as there was little to no online information about the collections. Often, there are detailed paper finding aids available in SCUA that may contain additional information.
Update on February 16, 2012:
We will also post announcements for:
Updated finding aid = for when collections already have NWDA finding aids, but we have added additional materials to the collection and updated the finding aid to reflect these additions. We won’t be posting announcement if we update a spelling error in a finding aid, but we want to be able to alert people who have already looked at a finding aid or collection that it might warrant a second look with the addition of new materials.
ArchiveGrid, once a fee based program, will be free and open for all for all now run by OCLC Research. ArchiveGrid connects you with primary source material held in archives around the world. You will find historical documents, personal papers, family histories, and more. ArchiveGrid also helps researchers contact archives to request information, arrange a visit, and order copies.
ArchiveGrid includes archival collection descriptions from WorldCat bibliographic records and from finding aids harvested from contributors’ websites.
Check out the beta version for new enhancements and features. This prototype system from OCLC Research is in its early stages of development, and we’re interested in your comments and suggestions. We’ll be updating the site regularly with more archival descriptions and more features, so check back with us to see what’s new.
