Looking for a possible digitization partner/collaborator?

I saw the following message posted on a discussion list this morning. Looking at this RLG site, my first thought was that this might allow a collection to find a similar collection to partner with on a project.

Since the release of ArchiveGrid, the response to RLG has been overwhelming: in March alone close to 200,000 visitors came to the site, dozens of institutions asked to become contributors, and more than 1,000 websites linked to ArchiveGrid -- and these numbers are growing every day.

Use RLG's ArchiveGrid free now through May 31, and let us know what you think:

We have received an enormous amount of positive feedback from faculty, library and archives staff, and genealogists -- many thanking us for making this site available. To read what the press has to say about it, see "ArchiveGrid in the News" at

RLG received funding to make ArchiveGrid available for three months but continued free access has not been guaranteed; therefore, we are making plans to provide institutional and individual subscriptions.

Please contact the RLG Information Center ( for more information.
