Massachusetts State Archives Expands, New Vault Opens
From The Boston Globe:
Massachusetts officials on Tuesday unveiled a new vault to store the commonwealth’s myriad historical treasures and documents accumulated over nearly four centuries.
The expanded 25,000 square-foot space in Dorchester allow the archives to grow after the Columbia Point building reached a “critical point” of limited space, said Michael Comeau, executive director of the archives. The space also features modern environmental and security controls.
The opening follows a recently announced online digital archive base that allows users to search for specific documents.
