To access this wonderful resource, simply go to https://acpl-cms.wise.oclc.org/, select RESEARCH tab and click on COMMUNITY ALBUM. The Community Album consists of 110 individual collections, which focus on telling the story of the places and people of Allen County, Indiana. There are many ways to explore this resource, which as of now contains more than 64,000 photographs and documents. To peruse the entire collection, select BROWSE from the drop down menu, which is located in the upper right corner of the screen. From here, you can utilize the SEARCH box to look for people, places, events, and more. If you are looking for an individual, you can use the SEARCH box. If you have the full name of an individual, type it as “first name + last name” and click on the magnifying glass icon. For example, a search for Don Alvather, an employee of the International Harvester Company, yields 8 images that are all a part of our International Harvester Company-Navistar Collection. It is also possible to just type the last name, if it is unique enough. For example: Handlin, yields only 8 results, but Wayne yields 34,210! If you are looking for an institution, let’s say Northside High School, type the name of the school and select the magnifying glass. This search yields 41 results, both photographs and documents. If you are looking for an event at a particular institution, type the name of the institution and keyword for the event. For example: “International Harvester + reunion” yields 38 results, both photographs and documents. If you want to exclude a particular collection from your search, simply uncheck the box next to the collection’s name in the COLLECTIONS sidebar and click UPDATE. This feature is available after a search is performed. You can also choose to browse a specific collection such as one of our favorites, the Kallen-Wiseley Family Postcards collection. To do so, just select the name of the collection that you are interested in viewing, and you will be taken to the collection’s landing page. From here, you can click on the BROWSE button, which will allow you to view the entire collection. You can limit the search by DATE CREATED, or you can use the SEARCH box to narrow down your search even further. Let's say you are only interested in “New Year” postcards. Go ahead and type “new year” into the search box and click on the magnifying glass icon. This particular search yields 7 matches with postcards that contain “new year” in the metadata.

The names of Nazi SS commanders and guards at the Auschwitz death camp in German-occupied Poland have been put online by the country’s Institute of National Remembrance (INR). It has been hailed as the most comprehensive list to date. About 9,000 names – nearly all German – are on the Auschwitz garrison list, some with photographs attached. The INR hopes the list will prove that Auschwitz was not a Polish-run camp. More than a million people died there. The victims were overwhelmingly Jewish – but Poles, Roma and political prisoners were also murdered.
