ER&L Conference 2018

The goal of the ER&L Conference is to bring together information professionals from libraries and related industries to improve the way we collect, manage, maintain, and make accessible electronic resources in an ever-changing online environment. We do this once a year at an in-person conference. In addition, sessions are recorded and made available online in an online conference. ER&L allows for cross-pollination of ideas across fields of librarianship not often brought together in traditional public services or technical services conferences.

ACH-Webinar-2

American County Histories – A Unique Research Resource!

American County Histories provide vivid portraits of people, places and events, putting a state’s local and regional history into current context with the examination of demographic, social, economic, and cultural transformations. This webinar explores the question — Why should researchers, historians, and librarians encourage on-going preservation and use of a publication genre like county histories? It also discusses publication trends, library user cases, the scope of online resources, and more.

Hosted by Bob Lester, Product Development & Strategy Consultant, Unlimited Priorities, LLC

Presenter: Jill O’Neill, Educational Programs Manager for the National Information Standards Organization (NISO)

Accessible Archives Nears Completion of Page Imaging For American County Histories

Full Text Digitization Continues to be Loaded

Malvern, PA (October 19, 2017)Accessible Archives, Inc.®, an electronic publisher of full-text primary source historical databases, has announced that page images for all books within its American County Histories collection will be mounted to the website by year-end.

Thirty-four states are complete with images and text, including all states comprising the Southeast, Southwest and West regions. The remaining regions will be completed over the next months: Central, New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest. 

As with all Accessible Archives databases each article is keyed and XML-tagged.  These imaged pages backed by re-keyed text produce more accurate search results and cleaner text than dirty OCR. The completed project will allow users to search by individual county, across a state or region, or throughout the entire country as a unified entry. 

American County Histories cover local history, geology, geography, weather, transportation, Revolutionary and Civil War participants, government, medical and legal professions, churches, industry and manufacturing, banking and insurance, schools, and teachers, noted celebrations, fire departments and associations, cemeteries, family histories, health and vital statistics, roads and bridges, public officials and legislators, and many additional subject areas. For an overview of non-traditional uses and original sources, please see our whitepaper. 

In its role as exclusive sales and marketing agent for Accessible Archives, Unlimited Priorities LLC ® has helped expedite this project by providing technical and production assistance, product development and licensing agreements.  Iris L. Hanney, Unlimited Priorities president, commented: “This conversion is the largest Accessible Archives has undertaken, and we’re gratified to see the end in sight. It has been painstaking work, but the final result has firmly established the company as the foremost digitized source for nationwide coverage of county histories.”

SPECIAL SALE!

To celebrate this impending collection completion Accessible Archives has announced a SPECIAL SALE! The purchase of any portion of American County Histories earns a 25% discount. And for those attending the Charleston Conference and visiting Table #32 an additional 10% discount will be applied (Those NOT attending should mention the conference to receive this extra discount).

 Accessible Archives continues to be sensitive to library budgetary requirements, so ask about special offers on our other databases. We’ve worked with librarians over the years, helping expand their primary source databases in a logical and cost-effective manner, and will continue to do so.
