The Ohio Memory Project: Building an Online Scrapbook of Ohio History

CO-ASIS&T Annual Meeting and Luncheon

Laurie Gemmill
Ohio Memory Project Manager
Ohio Historical Society

The Ohio Memory Project staff has been working with more than 250 libraries, museums, archives, and historical societies across the state to create a virtual collection of primary source materials. Acting as a single point of access to historical documents and artifacts from a variety of institutions, the resulting website highlights connections between collections, providing more comprehensive coverage of the state’s history than any single institution could.

The presentation will include a history of the project, highlight some material and cover various project elements including selection criteria, metadata, controlled vocabularies, and usability testing.
