At Your Fingertips   At Your Fingertips logo

Help us move from the 17th century to the 21st century!  Many of the documents created today that will be part of the archives tomorrow are born digital.  Digital items, including documents, emails, and web pages, require different care than that used to preserve physical items.  Additionally, digitizing older manuscripts and audio-visual materials will make hard-copy documents accessible to more people.  Make a pledge or donation to the At Your Fingertips campaign and help put Baptist history at your fingertips!  Please indicate that your tax-deductible donation is for the “At Your Fingertips” campaign.
