WikiProject NARA Works to be retrieved
This page is to list works that are wanted from NARA.

Wikisource:NARA header

Please add works that you would like to be retrieved from NARA to the list below. Please provide as much information as you can, including the ARC reference, as this will help us to locate that work. Please add only works that you think are valuable or that you have a personal interest in, as the users on the ground at NARA are only human!

When works have been located and uploaded to Commons (or other appropriate file-hosting service if the data is not Commons-ready), it should be moved to the Work preparation list.

Searching[edit]

Basically there are three ways to search NARA for possibly interesting WS-hostable stuff

The list[edit]

  • The Seventeenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution -- this is an important political issue currently, and there is a peer review of the Wikipedia article about the amendment currently underway. -Pete (talk) 18:58, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
  • Photography of Dorothea Lange -- there are a few photos here and here, but it looks as though there are many more in the archives? -Pete (talk) 21:08, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
    • There are a couple of thousand in commons:Category:Dorothea Lange Most of these come from the NARA mass upload. We used NARA's authority control to automatically add the Dorothea Lange creator template and category to the Commons image uploads, so anything uploaded by NARA so far and credited to Lange in their metadata will appear there. Do you see any other photos in the NARA collection that haven't yet been digitized, or are digitized but not uploaded in high-resolution? Dominic (talk) 00:03, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
      • Ah, OK. Ignore this request then, sorry -- thanks for the explanation, I'll explore those. -Pete (talk) 19:14, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
  • The three items linked on this page: http://www.digitalvaults.org/tags/o/oregon.html There do not appear to be high-resolution scans available on this site. -Pete (talk) 16:15, 31 December 2011 (UTC)
