ArchiveGrid, a discovery system that provides access to detailed archival collection descriptions, was formerly offered as an OCLC subscription service but has recently been made freely available by OCLC Research. Join Consulting Software Engineer Bruce Washburn, Research Assistant Ellen Eckert, Senior Program Officer Merrilee Proffitt and others from OCLC Research in this webinar for an overview of ArchiveGrid's mission, its users and uses, as well as a tour of the current system and an in-depth look at how it’s built. You’ll also learn how to include your collection descriptions in ArchiveGrid, talk with the ArchiveGrid team about current research and development plans, and hear how challenges in archival discovery are motivating us to think about the system in new and interesting ways.
Register here* to attend this webinar on 23 May from 3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT (UTC 19:00-20:00).
This is the thirteenth webinar in the OCLC Research Technical Advances for Innovation in Cultural Heritage Institutions (TAI CHI) Webinar Series developed to highlight specific innovative applications, often locally developed, that libraries, museums and archives may find effective in their own environments, as well as to teach technical staff new technologies and skills.
