Index to Forest Service Photographs

In my last blog regarding digitization activities I highlighted the series 95-GP “Photographs Relating to National Forests, Resource Management Practices, Personnel, and Cultural and Economic History, ca. 1897-1980” (ARC Identifier 651890) and mentioned that the series must be searched using primary and secondary subject categories, because no item level metadata currently exists. To aid researchers in browsing this series, we have now posted an index to the series online.  The index contains five fields (primary divider, secondary divider, subject title, subject organization, box) , which are sortable and by clicking on the linked number under primary divider, researchers will be taken to images for that divider in ARC.  We have added two links to the index from the What’s New for Researchers and the Photographic and Graphic Works in the National Archives at College Park, MD web pages. It will also be added to the series description as an online resource.
