Digitization Status

Franco American Digital Archives/Portail franco-américain aims to remove barriers between researchers and Franco-American collections by providing access points and pathways to those collections. Although not all materials linked in FADA/PFA are currently available digitally, we recognize the importance of providing basic knowledge about historic materials regardless of their digitization status.

The "Digitization Status" of an item or collection found in the portal indicates whether or not that item or collection has been digitized and made available for online access. Different status notes that appear alongside materials in the portal are:

Digitized / Numérisé(e) - The item or collection has been fully digitized and made available online through the "View at Contributing Institution" link that appears in the FADA/PFA record.

Partially Digitized / En partie numérisé(e) - A portion of the item or collection has been digitized and made available online through the "View at Contributing Institution" link that appears in the FADA/PFA record.

Not Digitized / Non numérisé(e) - The item or collection has not been digitized. However, there is a online record for that item or collection available through the "View at Contributing Institution" link that appears in the FADA/PFA record. Portal users may visit that institution or reach out to that institution's staff to learn about how they might use the item or collection.
