Archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero on “NARA’s Leadership in the Digital Decade”; 97 Million Digital Records Now Online
From NARA’s AOTUS Blog:
Our digitization partnerships have resulted in tens of millions of digital copies of our records that we are making available in our Catalog. Ten years ago, NARA had 300,000 digital copies of our records available through the Catalog. Today we have 97 million and counting. We are working toward a goal of having 500 million digital copies available through our Catalog by FY24. After that, we are on to our first billion.
Our partnership with the Digital Public Library of America has resulted in more views of our records on their site than on our own. Our digitization partners’ websites provided over 300 million views to our records in 2019.
