This small hands-on seminar will provide history students the opportunity to apply their research skills in the creation of an online digital archive. As part of the planning for this final project, we will examine nationally recognized best practices for metadata creation and technical sustainability, and then apply these principals in a “mock” grant proposal utilizing “real” grant guidelines provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our course will marry theory (research, archival standards, and best practices for digital libraries), with applied project planning. The major project of the course will be the creation of a nationally recognized digital collection of Native American photographs from the Lucullus V. McWhorter collection.
