This week’s Featured Online Resource is the Grateful Dead Archive Online (http://gdao.org/). The collection is drawn from more than 45,000 items that were digitized and stored at University of California Santa Cruz Library’s Special Collections and Archives Department. Additionally, content to the archive has also been submitted by the global network of Grateful Dead fans. Digitized content includes: recordings, posters, fanzines, photographs, tickets, t-shirts, and other web resources available about the Grateful Dead. The archive documents the band’s influence on music from 1965 to 1995.
There are several online exhibits, including one on different Grateful Dead posters. It can be accessed directly through the following link: http://gdao.org/exhibits/show/posters
The archive allows users to search the collection by keyword using a simple search box on the main screen. Additionally, the archive offers an advanced search option to help narrow down your search by item format and date.
