“Today’s Document” is the name given to the newly released first mobile application based on the “popular feature” on Archives.gov.

It’s an interactive gallery that gives you access to explore the holdings of the US National Archives through 365 fascinating documents and photographs thorough history.

If you want to learn what happened on your birthday, you can search the documents by keyword or just browse the collection.

If you zoom in on the high resolution images you’ll get an up close look at the featured documents and photographs, or you can use the calendar feather to select a specific date.

You can share a document via email, Facebook or Twitter, you can do that too.

You can find the mobile application in the Android marketplace and the Apple iTunes Store.

    This is interesting. Some of the libraries that are closing in the UK are offering data to people via apps.
