SNAC: Social Networks and Archival Context
SNAC is pleased to announce the launch of the Social Networks and Archival Context Cooperative, hosted by the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The Cooperative will enable archivists, librarians, and scholars to jointly maintain information about the people documented in archival collections. It will also improve the economy and quality of archival processing and description, and address the challenge of discovering, locating, and using distributed historical records. This is a pilot project that is helping researchers connect the scattered archival collections of important people, places, and events.
