ArchiveGrid is a freely available system for discovering and locating archival collections around the world. Developed and supported by OCLC Research, this tool facilitates the discovery of primary source materials both through the ArchiveGrid interface and via widely used search engines. In this session, the speakers will discuss ArchiveGrid from the developer’s versus the practitioner’s perspective. They will also provide an overview of the ArchiveGrid system, including how collection descriptions are contributed to the database, benefits to students and researchers, and ArchiveGrid enhancements now underway at OCLC Research.
