There is a research workshop this weekend: Hands On ArkivDigital Workshop with Kathy Meade, the North American representative for ArchivDigital. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday in the computer lab at the Stratford Community School. You may bring your own laptop or use one of the school’s computers. Register at http://www.swedebend.com/events/arkivdigital-registration.html.

I did a couple of searches, using the “in this journal” option. You can download a PDF of the whole article, with a cover page and end page. It’s another resource for Iowa history.
