BROWSING THE ARCHIVES ONLINE

The staff of the Blue Ridge Heritage Archives is steadily working to put the Archives catalog online. This is a multi-year project, and eventually online visitors will be able to view (or listen to) selected holdings as well as search the catalog. The approximate percentage of the catalog database currently online is as follows:

  • Audio Recordings (All Formats) -- 50%
  • Photographic Images (All Formats) -- 40%
  • Video Recordings -- 100%
  • Books -- 40%
  • Documents -- 1%

When searching through the online catalog, keep in mind that the Subject category is less specific than the Name/Description category. For example, the term ARCHITECTURE is suitable for searching in the Subject catgeory, but the term CABIN is more appropriate for searching in the Name/Description category.
