New Resources Related to Archival Materials & Digital Docs

We've linked to two new resources from NC Live: ArchiveGrid and OAIster.

ArchiveGrid is an important destination for searching through historical documents, personal papers, and family histories held in archives around the world. Thousands of libraries, museums, and archives have contributed nearly a million collection descriptions to ArchiveGrid. Researchers can discover the items in each of these collections, then contact the archives to learn how to access the materials. Provides access to primary source information, including birth and death records, ship logs, cemetery records, and more.

OAIster is a union catalog of digital resources from archive collections around the world. It represents multidisciplinary resources from more than 1,100 contributors worldwide. Records contain a digital object link allowing users access to the object. Includes items such as theses, technical reports, research papers, government documents, and images.

Enjoy, and let us know if you have any questions.
