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. In this webinar, Consulting Software Engineer Bruce Washburn, Research Assistant Ellen Eckert, Senior Program Officer Merrilee Proffitt and others from OCLC Research provide 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. Watch this webinar to learn how you can include your collection descriptions in ArchiveGrid, learn about current ArchiveGrid research and development plans, and hear how challenges in archival discovery are motivating us to think about the system in new and interesting ways.

This was 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.
