About the Archival Finding Aids
Implemented in 1999, the Physics History Finding Aids web site serves as a central information resource for locating archival materials from institutions whose history of science archival holdings are particularly rich.
This web site was created in part with funds provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, a federal agency.
We are always seeking new members to join the project. If you would like to speak with us about inclusion, contact us.
At the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting in Denver in August, 2000, we sponsored a session entitled "Everything But Encoding: Costs and Benefits of EAD Consortia". Papers were given by:
- Caroline Moseley, Bowdoin College, Session Chair (Introductory and Closing Remarks)
- Katy Hayes, AIP, ("Nine-Tenths Planning, One-Tenth Tagging: The Physics History EAD Consortium")
- Clay Redding, AIP, ("How Much Does it Cost?: A Comparative Cost Analysis"; later published as: Redding, Clay. 2001. "The economics of a cooperative EAD project." Library Hi Tech, 19(4), pp. 400-407.)
- Megan Sniffin-Marinoff, MIT, ("What's In It for Me?: The Pleasures and Pitfalls of Joining a Consortium").
