The Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art has been awarded $100,000 by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation’s Digital Resources grant program to support a project to preserve, arrange and create Web-searchable online electronic finding aids for 10 archival collections that are central to provenance research for the history of art during World War II. The project will also digitize one of the most significant newly processed collections in its entirety, as well as selected documents from additional collections. Once completed, this body of resources will provide contextual online access via a dedicated Web page, greatly expanding World War II-era art provenance research resources available. This material will become easily accessible to millions of worldwide users at: www.aaa.si.edu
