Creation of the Digital Archive for the Tall Ships of America

Project tags:

archives & special collections

information architecture

This project is to work towards a digital archive of the manuscripts, photos and other items. There is about 700 items within the collection, the main concept is to catalog them, and recommend the best practices for the archive. This opinion will establish a framework for the organization that can be perfected in the future and give an idea of the collection at hand. One of my goals for this project is to start the conversation about access to digital archives and the differences between the funding each library has access to.
