Imagine America Foundation Announces Free Archive Access

Washington, D.C. (Dec. 18, 2007) – History is more than a subject taught in grade school. History is the root of identity. No one appreciates this more than those who have spent their lives gathering research and presenting historical facts to present and future generations.

For more than 25 years, the Imagine America Foundation has acted as a research provider for the career college sector of higher education. Continuing in this tradition, the Foundation is proud to announce the addition of the research and history archives to its web site, www.imagine-america.org.

The research archive features research studies the Foundation has initiated on behalf of the career college sector. The history archive includes a photo gallery of career colleges, a historical timeline and information on sector officials. Both archives invite users to leave comments and submit information.

Imagine America Foundation hopes these archives will serve to illustrate and preserve the rich history of the career college sector. The Foundation provides free and full access to materials in order to share this knowledge with a wider audience.

"By sharing our history and research archives, we hope to bring a deeper understanding to the general public as to the contributions of career colleges nationwide," said Robert L. Martin, Imagine America Foundation president.

The Foundation will continue to add materials highlighting important topics and time periods to assist visitors of all academic levels.
