Celebrating the Launch of the Grateful Dead Archive Online

Yesterday marked the grand opening of the Grateful Dead Archive Online. I am one excited Deadhead to be able to share this invaluable living historic site with you. I now have a new pilgrimage to make to the University of California Santa Cruz’s McHenry Library.

The real benefit of this archive is that I don’t have to get in the car tomorrow and head across country to visit the library. I can browse with my Google Chrome Internet browser extensive information about the Grateful Dead across the Web from my home office chair.

I learned about the treasures contained in the historic collection when my wife and I visited The Grateful Dead exhibit at the New York Historic Society on June 18, 2010. The exhibit was just a portion of the extensive Grateful Dead archive on loan from UC Santa Cruz. It was a special day for us as my blog post documents here.

What was even cooler yesterday was that a concert by famed Bay Area band Moonalice was performed in celebration on the lawn of UC Santa Cruz’s McHenry Library.

So c’mon fellow Deadheads and music lovers everywhere. Explore the archives and make a contribution online to the archive as we intend to do.
