        Subject: Public release of IATH's Social Networks and Archival Context Project

I hope some of you will be interested in the early research and  
development results of the Social Networks and Archival Context  
project. See announcement below for relevant links.

To get a very good sense of the direction and potential, I recommend  
that you try the following searches:

Whitman, Walt

Oppenheimer, J. Robert

Bush, Vannevar, 1890-1974.

Bernstein, Leonard.

And just feel free to play around!



The Social Networks and Archival Context (SNAC) Project is pleased to  
announce the initial public release of the DRAFT prototype historical  
resource and access system based on EAC-CPF. While SNAC research and  
development will continue until May 2012, we would like to make our  
early results available to the cultural heritage professional  
communities in order to solicit feedback on both the design of the  
public interface and the processing of the data.

SNAC is funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the  

Direct access to the prototype system and a detailed description of  
project work to date may be found at http://socialarchive.iath.virginia.edu/prototype.html
