Introducing Archival Connections

Welcome! This shares information from a five-year research project that I am coordinating at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  The project aims to make it easier for people to find and use the materials managed by archival repositories like the University of Illinois Archives, where I work.  You can read more about the project on the about page.

This site is a successor to my Practical E-Records blog, but the focus here is less on preservation and more on access to born-digital, ‘cloud-based’ and other archival records.  Archival Connections is intended to be a collaborative effort, both inside Illinois and in the broader digital archives/Library community.
