NARA: The National Archives Online Public Access (OPA) Prototype Debuts on December 27, 2010

From a National Archives and Records Administration News (NARA): Release

The National Archives Online Public Access (OPA) prototype which is the National Archives flagship initiative in its Open Government Plan. It is the prototype for the public portal that will provide access to digitized records, descriptions of holdings that are not online, and eventually access to electronic records from the Electronic Records Archives (ERA).

From the Article "NARA to Offer Online Search Engine" by Alice Lipowicz:

The National Archives and Records Administration is putting the finishing touches on a new online search system that consolidates access to 20 million federal archival records, officials have announced.

The Online Public Access prototype scheduled to debut Dec. 27 is a flagship initiative of the agency’s open government plan.

It offers the ability to search across multiple online resources at NARA, including Archives.gov, the Archival Research Catalog, and Access to Archival Databases.

The tool features additional results in the event of a spelling or a notation error. Primary documents are pushed to the top of the search results, and filters allow for limiting of results by date, location or topic.

Although the online search tool will not enable searches of NARA’s extensive presence on the Flickr photo-sharing website, all the NARA photos posted on Flickr are also contained in the NARA archives.
