5 Things Thursday: Local History, EAD, Web Archives

Here are five more things…

  1. A little local history find for Seattle folks – “Lost Eddie Sato World’s Fair Photos Now Found.” The slides were at a discount store in Chicago. Pretty mod stuff!
  2. Why archive websites? This article from LOC tells you about the why and what of web archiving.
  3. I’ve been looking for examples of nice finding aids in CONTENTdm. Here are some from the Phillips Library.
  4. I must watch this webinar now – “Achieving Thresholds for Discovery: Addressing Issues with EAD to Increase Discovery and Access.” Thanks OCLC!
  5. Check out this Kickstarter project for library advocacy – libraries are more than books!
