Check out the sandbox: ArchiveGrid

October 19th, 2011 by Merrilee

Last month, Jim blogged about the new and experimental ArchiveGrid. If you meant to take a look and forgot, I’ll remind you again — go take a look. And plan to join us for a free webinar on ArchiveGrid on November 3rd. Details and a link to register are available here.

From the blurb:

ArchiveGrid, an OCLC discovery service that provides access to detailed archival collection descriptions, is transitioning into a free service. Its interface has a new look and will make finding primary source materials held in archival collections worldwide even easier for researchers. In this short and lively webinar, you’ll hear about ArchiveGrid’s history and its new beta discovery system in development in OCLC Research, plus have the chance to talk with the ArchiveGrid team about future research and development plans. Join software engineer Bruce Washburn, research assistant Ellen Ast and others from OCLC Research for this demonstration and a discussion where you are welcome to share your thoughts.

    Beta version of new interface is VERY pretty — more usable, more options, etc. Kudos :)
