The spot where information about information lives

ArchiveGrid

ArchiveGrid?  Never heard of this?  Well, neither had I until I stumbled on a blog post extolling its virtues.  Here’s their description of this service:

With over 1,000 different archival institutions represented, ArchiveGrid helps researchers looking for primary source materials held in archives, libraries, museums and historical societies.
