The Texas Archive of the Moving Image has received an Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History for its website, TexasArchive.org. The newly redesigned website, which was launched in September, “is more intuitive for visitors to navigate, and provides an overall richer interactive experience,” a release said. TAMI’s site, which offers online access to historical films, is one of 88 national award recipients representing projects, exhibits, books, organizations and people. The awards will be presented during the 2013 AASLH annual meeting in Birmingham, Alabama, on Friday, September 20.
