Washington State Archives’ Digital Archives Reaches 200 Millionth Record
From the Washington Secretary of State:
The Washington State Archives’ Digital Archives reached a milestone achievement late last week when it entered its 200 millionth record into the state database.
The Washington State Archives’ Digital Archives is the nation’s first archives dedicated specifically to the preservation of electronic records from both state and local agencies that have permanent legal, fiscal or historical value. The facility, which opened in 2004, includes a research room, computer research stations, a high tech presentation classroom, and a world-class data center.
Digital Archives delivers broad public access to both digitized and “born digital” records of state and local government, provides government accountability and – in the case of digitized documents – helps preserve the originals.
