Social Networks and Archival Context (SNAC) is an online project for discovering, locating, and using distributed historical records in regard to individual people, families, and organizations.[1]

History

SNAC was established in 2010, with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA),[2] California Digital Library (CDL), Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities (IATH) at the University of Virginia and the University of California, Berkeley School of Information.[3][4][5] The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded the second phase of the project from 2012 to 2014.[6]

One of the project's tools is a radial-graph feature which helps identify a social network of a subject's connections to related historical individuals.Howard, Jennifer (2012), Projects Aims to Build Online Hub for Archival Materials, The Chronicle of Higher Education, retrieved 10 January 2018

SNAC is used alongside other digital archives to connect related historical records.[7]
