Date Posted: February 2, 2013       Categories: 49 History

The Archives and Special Collections section of the UAA Consortium Library, along with multiple partners statewide, has developed a website intended to identify and describe substantive collections relating to the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964.
The site is available at: http://64akquake.org/
Project goals:
1. To expand access to primary source materials about the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964.
2. To provide a collaborative website that can act as a starting point for individuals interested in researching the earthquake.
Funding was provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services via the Alaska State Library through an Interlibrary Cooperation Grant awarded in June 2012. Grant application support was provided by the Valdez Museum, Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, Alaska Resources Library and Information Service (ARLIS), Seward Community Library and Alaska Moving Image Preservation Association (AMIPA).
