The Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives is pleased to announce the completion of its Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company (CCI) Records Digitization Project.  Funded with a grant from the National
Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the project features a website with access to approximately 70,000 digital reproductions of historic records documenting the history of the iron mining and lumber industries in Michigan's central Upper Peninsula.   The records are from the Agents' Annual Reports of CCI's Lumber, Land, and Mining Departments, spanning the years 1892 to 1960.  Also included are 235 historic maps documenting land use and mining activities. Users can access these documents by clicking on links within the modified Encoded Archival Description (EAD) finding aid.  The website also includes historic mining photographs that are linked to the Archives' Flickr photostream, lesson plans for Michigan fourth graders, and an instructional blog for archivists and other public historians who would like to learn more about the digitization of historic materials. 

Archivists and researchers can view the website at
