Civil War Project - Metadata Form


Published on

Metadata form used in our Civil War project by students working at the Lackawanna Historical Society.

From "The Practical Historian," a presentation with Dr. Kathryn Shively Meier at the 2012 meeting of the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic in Baltimore, Maryland.

Professors Meier and Yarmey will discuss their students’ project, “Any Victory Would Be Dear.” Groups of students partnered with the Lackawanna Historical Society, Scranton Public Library, and university library to conduct archival research on the Antebellum/Civil War Era, which they then preserved, catalogued, transcribed, digitized, and curated in an online exhibit. Not only did the project allow students to gain professional training and experience, but the Lackawanna Historical Society benefited from free digitization of previously uncatalogued materials now available to the public via the Scranton Public Library website.
