Publication Type: Invited Paper
Abstract: The research libraries (Duke University, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) in North Carolina's triangle region are planning a collaborative, large-scale, digitization project targeting the primary sources in their archives which document African American history in the state. As the lead archivists plan the project, write grants to fund reformatting and consider presentation of the digital objects and delivery mechanisms, they want to hear from you--the target audience for the outcomes of the project. What types of primary source materials do you find useful in your work and what are your preferences for finding and using archival evidence? The session will begin with brief introductions to the institutions' African American holdings followed by an explanation of the emerging project. Please come prepared to provide feedback on the project and to offer suggestions for innovative research access.
