Northwest Digital Archives: Expanding Access to Northwest Archival Collections

The creation of 482 archival finding aids for inclusion in the Northwest Digital Archives, an online union database supported by a consortium of twenty-eight archives and other repositories containing manuscript materials documenting the history and culture of the Pacific Northwest.

The Northwest Digital Archives (NWDA), a well-established consortium of twenty-eight archives and manuscript repositories in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, and Montana, seeks $137,756 in NEH funds for a one-year project to mark-up 482 finding aids in XML Encoded Archival Description for addition to NWDA's database of finding aids that has been freely available worldwide since July 2004 at Six institutions hold the regionally and nationally significant collections represented by the 482 finding aids. The participating institutions are Montana State University, Western Oregon University, The Evergreen State College, Oregon Institute of Technology, Eastern Washington University, and Boise State University. The collections included in this project are not only important in their own right, but significantly complement the more than 5,500 collections already represented in the NWDA database.
