Development of a union database of online finding aids for archival holdings on United States and state history in various Rhode Island repositories.

The Rhode Island Archival and Manuscript Collections Online (RIAMCO) project proposes to develop a statewide union database of Encoded Archival Description (EAD) finding aids to improve access to archival and manuscript collections held in the following ten special collections repositories throughout Rhode Island: Brown University, John Carter Brown Library, Providence College, Rhode Island Historical Society, Rhode Island School of Design, Rhode Island State Archives, Roger Williams University, Salve Regina University, University of Rhode Island, and Westerly Public Library. This two-year project is seeking funds to encode finding aids to at least 336 collections totaling approximately 4,110 linear feet and relating to a variety of subjects, train archivists in implementing EAD, and standardize descriptive practices across institutions.
