Mapping Renewal: How An Unexpected Interdisciplinary Collaboration Transformed A Digital Humanities Project, Elise Tanner, Geoffrey Joseph

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

The Vermont Broadside Collection: No Longer Hidden, Prudence J. Doherty, Sharon Thayer

UVM Libraries Conference Day

The Wilbur Collection of Vermontiana contains hundreds of unique broadsides that document community activities and concerns from the 1770s through the 20th century. Until recently, only a very small percentage of the rich broadside collection was catalogued. Two years ago, Special Collections and the Resource Description and Analysis departments joined forces to make all of the Vermont broadsides accessible to researchers. This poster session will describe the collaborative effort and share some newly accessible examples from the collection.


Documenting Community History, Linda Reynolds Apr 2008

Documenting Community History, Linda Reynolds

Bright Ideas Conference

Historically archives and museums have sought out collections to keep in their institution. Many members of the community are not ready to donate their cherished family heirlooms to a museum or archive. The East Texas Research Center (ETRC) at Ralph W.

ETRC temporarily borrows material from the community or members of the community bring their historic material to be digitized and added to the TIDES database.
