OCLC Research TAI CHI Webinar Series Presents ArchiveGrid, 3 November 2011 at 10 a.m. PDT / 1 p.m. EDT (UTC 17:00)

 
This webinar will review the processes behind the growth of the new ArchiveGrid system and the goals to promote it both as a sought-after information resource and as a model for archival discovery practices. Follow or tweet this webinar with #archivegrid.

ArchiveGrid, an OCLC discovery service that provides access to detailed archival collection descriptions, is transitioning into a free service. Its interface has a new look and will make finding primary source materials held in archival collections worldwide even easier for researchers. In this short and lively webinar, you'll hear about ArchiveGrid's history and its new beta discovery system in development in OCLC Research, plus have the chance to talk with the ArchiveGrid team about future research and development plans. Join software engineer Bruce Washburn, research assistant Ellen Ast and others from OCLC Research for this demonstration and a discussion where you are welcome to share your thoughts.

Webinar participation is free and open to all but advanced registration is required.
