SC adds a new online electronic records archive

Besides the South Carolina Department of Archives and History and its online records, which is always a favorite place of mine to do online SC research, we now have the South Carolina Electronic Records Archive (SCERA).

On this site you will find Electronic Records transferred to the South Carolina Department of Archives and History by state and local government agencies for permanent retention. You will also find digitized copies of physical records held at the archives and made accessible online for your convenience. Feel free to explore this site. You may use keyword/full-text search to find specific items or you can browse these holdings. We suggest that if you do use a keyword search, you also browse nearby records to see related materials.

Whereas the South Carolina Department of Archives and History (SCDAH) has online records that are historical, SCERA definitely has a mix of historic records and then also more modern records, including records as new as those created in 2014.

Initiatives to put more records online and readily accessible to all, is always laudable.  

Has your state similarly recently launched an online records initiative?
