I would welcome such a page. I was surprised to see that the Peabody Essex Museum was not listed on the report that Kate provided, even though our finding aids are being harvested by ArchiveGrid.

Hi everyone,


Just as a follow up to this, if you are an ArchiveGrid contributor, would you object to us putting up a page that would list all our contributors and that would give a link where you could see what you had contributed to ArchiveGrid? The hitch is that the links would be visible to all (we don’t have the resources to set up log ins for each institution). If this is something that would improve your ArchiveGrid contribution experience please let me know!

You can type “type:ead” into the search box for ArchiveGrid

It is a sign of how far we have come that repositories and aggregators are no longer celebrating “our Nth EAD”.  However, this has made looking for current EAD numbers difficult! How many finding aids do you have online?


Also, does anyone know if there any way to glean numbers of EAD from ArchiveGrid, for example?
