We have come to the end of the ECDS/HBCU Library Alliance Institute. It definitely has been a good week. I believe the presentations today were a testament to all we have learned this week and the wonderful insight of the ECDS staff. It was great to see my colleagues’ digital projects and how these projects preserve the rich legacy and history of HBCUs and the community they serve.
When I applied to the ECDS/HBCU Library Alliance Institute, I was hoping to achieve three objectives. Those objectives were to expand my knowledge of web technologies used to support digital scholarship, deepen my general knowledge of metadata, data curation, intellectual property (very informative session on Wednesday), and design (another great session on Wednesday), and leave with a tangible project that will showcase the rich historical research of my institution. At the end of the Institute, I can definitely say my expectations were met. Thank you ECDS staff and HBCU Library Alliance!
Now onward and forward with creating more online exhibits! #teamomeka
