ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF ARCHIVES AND HISTORY DEBUTS NEW WEBSITE

Montgomery, AL (08/03/2022) – Today the Alabama Department of Archives
and History (ADAH) debuted a new website, the culmination of a multi-year
project to improve and enhance the agency’s online presence. The new site (
www.archives.alabama.gov)
features powerful new research tools, user-friendly databases for educators and
public officials, information for planning visits to the ADAH’s Museum of
Alabama, and many more opportunities for the public to connect with the ADAH
and Alabama history online.

Highlights of the new site include robust databases for conducting
historical and genealogical research in the ADAH’s extensive archival
collections; the Alabama History Hub, a one-stop resource for K-12 educators classroom
resources curated by ADAH staff; an events calendar for at-a-glance information
about ADAH programs; and a new database of retention schedules and other
helpful resources on records management for state and local government offices.

 To mark the official launch, the ADAH released this welcome and brief
tour of the site by Director Steve Murray
https://bit.ly/ADAH_WebsiteLaunch.

 “Today’s launch is an important milestone in the Archives’ history and
our ongoing mission to collect, preserve, and share the stories of all
Alabamians,” said Murray. “The creation our new website took years of planning
and development. I am grateful to our staff for their diligent work to ensure
that the new site will be a useful resource for the public. I also want to
thank the team at the Alabama Office of Information Technology for applying
their technical expertise to building the site and its many custom databases
and applications. Together, we have created an effective and attractive online
presence to carry the Archives forward in an age when so much of our lives are
spent online.”

 The Alabama Department of Archives and History is the state’s
government-records repository, a special-collections library and research
facility, and home to the Museum of Alabama, the state history museum. It is
located in downtown Montgomery, directly across Washington Avenue from the
State Capitol.

The Museum of Alabama is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 to 4:30. The
EBSCO Research Room is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 to 4:30.
