ArchiveGrid is a new web site that offers 
faculty, scholars, librarians, and genealogists unparalleled access to 
archive records and finding aids to enable you to do extensive primary 
research  on your subject.  Search through nearly a million collection 
descriptions and get the information you need to arrange a visit or order 
copies.  Discover hidden collections or confirm the scope of collections 
you already know.  Save research time by locating exact box and shelf 
information so that your time on-site will be spent studying relevant 
materials, not looking for them.

Access to ArchiveGrid is free now through May 31, thanks to a funding 
grant to support wider use by the academic community and general public.

To get started, here are sample searches to copy and paste into the search 

- Captain Cook
-  hospital sanitation smallpox
- October Revolution Russia
-  Treaty Versailles
- Irish Emigration
- Balfour Declaration

ArchiveGrid has been developed by RLG, a not-for-profit membership 
organization of libraries, archives, and cultural organizations worldwide.
