I hope that everyone is safe and well! Here is a link to my webpage: https://dceducationandimmigration.omeka.net/items/browse! As I have mentioned before, I hope to create a digitized collection materials from the DC Public schools archives. Because of this Covid-19 situation, I was only only able to visit the Charles Sumner Museum and Archive twice. The documents that I digitized while there were meant to be starting points as they are mostly minutes from DC Board of Education Meetings. Before everything shut down, I had just begun the process of viewing reports and documents mentioned in the Board of Education minutes. Regardless, I still think the documents I have been able to digitize are valuable.
Before moving to adding materials to my Omeka.net site, I created deliverables à la Brown’s Communicating Design. I especially found creating a super simple persona and competitive analysis helpful for determining core components of the site.
Given my inability to access the physical documents in the Sumner archive, I’ve been thinking about including relevant newspaper articles. However, I need to look into copyright issues before doing so. Besides that, I am planning to create as many relevant collections I can (I had bigger plans for this and still plan to add more once I can access the archive again). Any and all suggestions for changes/additions/something else would be greatly appreciated!
