ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state has launched a new online system that allows public access to 1.5 million pages of New York records at the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

The parks office says the interactive system offers a convenient way for individuals and government agencies to access historic records. Known as the Cultural Resource Information System, the program provides easier access to information about the state’s historic and archaeological resources.

The website allows access to 1.5 million pages of records collected by state parks’ Division for Historic Preservation since 1966. The scanned documents include information on thousands of nominations for historic resources listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

The system was funded in large part with $1.8 million in federal funds administered by the state Department of Transportation.
