Spike in new contributors marks end-of-summer index update

After SAA, we received a higher number than usual of requests to contribute to ArchvieGrid and we credit this to the hard work Bruce Washburn, Merrilee Proffitt, and I have done in the last year marketing our system at conferences and with our professional networks. Here is a list of institutions we worked with in the past month to get represented in ArchiveGrid (this rose our collection description count from 1.7 to 1.8 million):

  • Congregational Library
  • Illinois State University – Dr. Jo Ann Rayfield Archives
  • Visual Communications Archives and Media Resource Library
  • Chester Library – Local History Department
  • Elon University – Carol Grotnes Belk Library
  • Georgia Institute of Technology – Archives and Records Management
  • Historical Society of Pennsylvania
  • Pepperdine University – Payson Library
