CMCC Launches Database of Archival Records
By Maria DiDanieli
July 2, 2009 – The Canadian
Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) announces the public launch of the online
database containing the holdings of the Archives Division of the CMCC Health
Sciences Library. This will be the first
archival database devoted solely to the study of the history of chiropractic.
The Archives Division houses a wealth of information about the history and development of both CMCC, and of chiropractic throughout Canada and North America.
The development of this database is a significant step in making these resources available to researchers throughout the world and represents a powerful tool in promoting the study of the history of chiropractic worldwide.
Unique among chiropractic organizations, this searchable database lists all the archival records held in the CMCC archives as well as a large selection of photographs illustrating the history of CMCC and of chiropractic.
Access the database through the CMCC Website at www.cmcc.ca.
Go to: Resources > Health Sciences Library > Archives Database: This page provides two separate search engines. One will search the entire database. The other will search only the photographic component of the database. Both use a simple, keyword search with advanced search options.
The archives database is a work in progress. Searching aids for newly described records, and items of particular interest, are continually being added and the database itself evolves almost daily.
Initiatives of this kind do not happen in a vacuum, and the development of this database is a co-operative venture. The CMCC Archives division would like to acknowledge the Canadian Chiropractic Historical Association for their ongoing support.
