ArchiveGrid is now available without a subscription!
Try the new ArchiveGrid system from OCLC Research
OCLC is phasing out its offering of ArchiveGrid as a subscription-based
service in WorldCat Local, FirstSearch, and at http://archivegrid.org,
and will replace it with the new OCLC Research ArchiveGrid system according
to the following time-table:
- - Beginning in November 2012, we will no longer require authentication (by IP address or logon account) to use the stand-alone ArchiveGrid subscription service at http://archivegrid.org. This will provide easier access to and better syndication of ArchiveGrid and its collections to search engines like Google.
- - By December 2012, the OCLC Research version of ArchiveGrid will transition from its current beta status to a production service.
- - In January 2013, the OCLC Research version of ArchiveGrid will replace the http://archivegrid.org interface.
ArchiveGrid connects you with primary source material held in archives,
special collections, and manuscript collections 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will find historical documents, personal papers, family histories,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 collection descriptions from WorldCat
bibliographic records and from finding aids harvested from
ArchiveGrid contributors' websites.
