Meet Solomon: the ELCA Archives online catalog

Cathy Lundeen

Solomon, the ELCA Archives online catalog, contains information on the archival and reference collections held  by the headquarters of Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Information on books, videos, cassettes, archival collections, films, reel-to-reel tape recordings, and more is found in the catalog. In addition to catalog information on the material held by the ELCA Archives, some catalog records include a link to digital content in the form of pdfs, photographs, and certain movies produced by ELCA predecessor church bodies.

Eloquent Systems, Inc., the company that designed and supports the catalog recently upgraded the catalog software to includes several new social media features. People browsing the catalog can now provide Facebook comments on particular items, tweet about an item, or email or print a catalog record – as well as several other options for social media and sharing. There is now also the Google Translate tool.

 We hope you like the new features!
