Web Site of the Week: DigitalVaults.org
Posted by: Christine Bulson
The National Archives has a fascinating site, digitalvaults.org which contains 1,200 documents of historical records of the US. Included are digitized photos, maps and artwork plus audio files and video clips. "Shuffle records" is an introduction that provides examples of documents from 1800 to the present. Keyword or searching by tag results in the fingerprints of Charles Lindbergh and a photo of Sandra Day O'Connor being sworn in as the first woman Supreme Court Justice. It is also possible to collect "pathways" that show relationships between different types of records.
