Game On

Finding Aids Incorporated in Newly Designed Website
Moving Images of Work Life, 1916-1960

Brass 9, a California-based Web design company (Geir Gaseidnes, Ian Smithdahl, Chris Moschini) flipped the switch: Northeast Historic Film's old Website is no more. We are now in a newly-designed Drupal site at with tons of new functionality: Integrated blog on the front page, video spotlights, home page search for site, collections, and store.

CollectiveAccess, the database for Moving Images of Work Life and our collections overall, is not yet presented with a Drupal front end but thanks to happy coordination between the teams all our finding aids are seamlessly integrated with the new site. Browse Northeast Historic Film's collections and search the finding aids here. You can leave a comment on an individual collection, click to "like," and download XML.

Start your day with pushups, joining the Camp Katahdin boys.
