I was happy to present the first public talk on the Children’s Bureau Papers Project last week at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study as part of their 2nd annual Workshop on Technology and Archival Processing. The Workshop is a day-long series of talks and conversations exploring how we can use technology to process archival collections faster and make them more useful and accessible.
As part of the precirculated abstracts, I wrote up this 2-page project description (PDF), which is the most detailed information I’ve released about the project yet.
Due to technical difficulties, the slides from my talk didn’t quite work out in the moment, but I’m posting them below for those who weren’t able to attend. (Links within the slides will open in a new browser window.)
I’d welcome questions, comments, and offers of collaboration below or via email.
