U.S. National Archives and 200+ million digitized images

A press release from several days ago:

“COLLEGE PARK, October 26, 2022 — The National Archives Catalog now contains more than 200 million digitized pages. 

The Office of Innovation collaborated with offices across the National Archives, as well as external partners like Ancestry and FamilySearch, to reach this milestone in August. 

Technical upgrades that improved how the agency uploads images have been critical to meeting this milestone and staying on track for the ultimate goal: 500 million digitized pages in the Catalog by September 2026.

The 205,039,338 digitized pages reflect records digitized by the agency and its partners, and the pages can be found in more than 28 million archival descriptions in the Catalog.”
