The Online Archive of California (OAC) is being completely redesigned for a planned live launch by early spring 2009. OAC provides access to nearly 9,000 online archival finding aids and more than 170,000 digital images and documents, aggregated from more than 90 contributors from all 10 UC campuses and from cultural heritage institutions across California. It is a vital resource for the University of California, the state of California, and researchers across the world.
A new web page has been created for the Redesign Project; see: http://www.cdlib.org/inside/projects/oac/oacredesign.html .
The page includes a project status as of April 25th; project goals, timeline and background information. This page will be updated as the project progresses.
