Northwest Digital Archives

The Northwest Digital Archives (NWDA) provides enhanced access to thousands of archival and manuscript collections in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington through a union database of Encoded Archival Description (EAD) finding aids.  Members create EAD finding aids and add those finding aids to the NWDA database , which provides a cross-search capability for member institutions and places members' collections into context with related collections from other institutions.
