Here’s this week’s challenge, authored by Amy Coffin:
Check out the online library catalog of a university. You may use one close to you, or one in the area of your research. Colleges and universities have wonderful archives, many of which are valuable to historical research. Browse around the library website and investigate the various archival collections. Make note of ones that may assist you in your own research. Genealogy blog authors are encouraged to write about what they find and share the details for benefit of their readers.
One online library (ebrary) in Arizona is from Grand Canyon University, a private institution that is noted for its online education and entrepreneur programs. Their ebrary has 7,115 listings on the subject of Genealogy. You must have a login and password to use their site. Grand Canyon University is based in Phoenix at 3300 W. Camelback Rd. (602) 639-6641
