The appraisal, arrangement, and description of approximately 1,200 linear feet of records, and the digitization of 10,000 textual documents, 500 images, and 100 hours of audio recordings on the history of the American Jewish Congress.

The goal of the project is to make all of the American Jewish Congress records available for research; the primary objectives are to a) refine the arrangement of the 2004 accession where necessary; b) continue the appraisal process, particularly with the 2004 accession, in order to eliminate unnecessary materials; c) integrate the two accessions; d) preserve the collection by means of appropriate rehousing; e) disseminate information about the collection via the Internet by means of an updated collection-level catalog record and a detailed finding aid; and f) make selected portions of the collection text, photographs, and recorded sound universally available by means of Web-accessible digital surrogates.
