Preserving Local History: A Field-Based Digitization Pilot Project


David Gwynn, with a big assist from colleague Stephen Catlett, has secured a 2013-2014 Community-Based Research Grant for a total of $3000 from UNCG's Office of Leadership and Service Learning. Entitled "Preserving Local History: A Field-Based Digitization Pilot Project," this project is designed to begin a conversation with and among a diverse group of community organizations and groups about the existence, status, condition and digitization possibilities of their archives or historical/library materials. The goal of this pilot project is to develop strategies, methodologies and “best practices” in order to begin a process, using the resources and expertise of UNCG, to preserve this rich history in a digital format, for easier dissemination to their constituencies and eventually to the wider public.
