On Thursday November 13, 2013 at 3:00pm the Connecticut Digital Archive (CTDA) launched the Nuremberg Trial Papers of Senator Thomas J. Dodd to the public. This collection is the first publicly accessible collection in the CTDA and at launch includes just over 12,000 pages. Over the coming months additional pages will be added to this collection and we encourage everyone to check the site often as new content is made available to the public.
The Archives and Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center site within the CTDA is based on a responsive design which enables users, regardless of device, to search and view content within the repository. In addition to being mobile, tablet and desktop viewable, the archive features Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for each page which enables full text searching throughout the documents within the repository. As you discover materials within the collection, you will view the pages which are part of folders. The folder organization is based on the original print collections and through the power of keyword searching, you are able to quickly locate documents throughout the collection which are related, but may be in separate folders or boxes in the original collection.
Check out the CTDA’s University of Connecticut Libraries Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center site and explore the Nuremberg Trial Papers of Senator Thomas J. Dodd.
New features will be added in the coming weeks and months so check the site and we welcome user feedback as we continue to refine the site.
