  • Hudson River Valley Heritage (HRVH) is a collaborative initiative between the Southeastern NY Library Resources Council (SENYLRC) and libraries, historical societies, museums and other cultural organizations in the Hudson River Valley Region – Columbia,Dutchess, Greene, Ulster, Sullivan, Rockland, Orange and Putnam Counties.We work with member institutions to digitize original research materials and make them available for free on the Internet.Which then provides researchers, students, instructors and website searchers have 24/7 access to the online collections of digitized historical materials – photos, postcards, letters, newspapers, diaries, scrapbooks, manuscripts, memorabilia, maps, ephemera, and audio and video clips – about the Hudson River Valley Region. Currently 38 organizations have contributed 22,5000 images to HRVHThe Southeastern NY library resources council is one of 9 councils across the state that are library systems charged with providing services to academic, special, hospital libraries to enable them to better serve their users through dynamic programs, innovative collaborations, and shared resources .2004 –Started pilot projects for HRVH SENYLRC members continually add new content and collections to HRVH.org and we actively seek collections to expand the site.
  • The results page shows us the 129 items for our keyword search for civil war. This page displays the thumbnail image and the image title. We are looking at page 3. The results page also gives some choices for refining the search even further. Like I said, 38 organizations contribute to HRVH. Results for Civil War come from HRVH, HHS, CHS, Nyack Library, Bard College and the New City Library.
  • I selected the #43, the civil war enrollment list for New Paltz. What I see on this page is the image at the top and the information or metadata below. There is also a section for comments.
  • Here is a larger view. The Information fields are provided to our contributors and they enter this information into the system that Jen will describe in a few minutes. Number of times viewed in 2010 6,302 The #1 viewed item from Historic Huguenot Street’s collections this year
  • Who we think is using the site:Definitely genealogistsGeneral web searchers looking at photos of paces they’ve been or used to livePeople doing research for personal history or academicsWe also have some indication of who is using the site from comments we receive, which is also a method of sharing memories with others.Great picture--brings back lots of memories. I lived in Ellenville from 1936 until 1940 and would like to see pictures of what it looks like today. Best years of my youth were spent here.Wow, that brings back memories! We used to go in the early 70's. I'm sorry to see it's no longer there.Where are searches coming from? What are they searching? The top web searches so far in 2010 are for these words: search, Hudson ,NY, river, valley, county, college, new, Vassar, york, Rockland, heritage, historical, library , community, house, Nyack, Chester, orange, hospital, Newburgh, Rhinebeck, Astor.
  • We provide some tools to encourage sharing of both the resources and what is found. The comments encourage the sharing of memories and the asking of questions. We have seen conversations unfold, like the one from DCC on the comments.Facebook is very popular so we are using it to try to be in one of the places on the web where people are. Provide them with the tools like FB and NY Heritage and lesson plans that Susan will talk about that help they utilize resources on the site and share.Present you with some ideas on how we are helping people share resources now.And some ideas for how other people are sharing historical content on the web and some recent collaborative efforts among our contributors.
  • Talk about comments
  • Public facebook page
  • NY Heritage is a collaborate project among all 9 3Rs councils. NY heritage is a portal to all of the digital projects that make up our regional digitization projects.Connects more than 160 digital collections from around the state.This project provides free, online access to images of cultural and historical significance in New York State.The goal of the project is to eventually connect one thousand collections and one million items from throughout New York State.
  • Results could be from any one of the 9 sites across the state. Click on image or title and then leave the “portal” and go to that region’s site, like HRVH.Fort Plain Free Library, Geneva HD, Clifton Park Library, CUNY Graduate School, Lockport PL
  • This "walking tour" of Fultonville, an upstate New York village, nestled near the old Erie Canal, has been created byRyan Weitz, a high school student. Ryan is the youngest member of the APHNYS (Association of Public Historians of New York State). Ryan has a passion for New York State history and the history of his community, which was founded in 1824. He has been encouraged by Mr. Robert Headwell, one of Ryan's teachers, who is also the mayor of Fultonville, N.Y.Love to see something like this using HRVH resources, but don’t know of one……
