The CLIR Water project is a
little over a year old and we’ve made a lot of progress. However, there is
still plenty to do. I have been working on metadata for the Chaffey brothers
letters–a mere fraction of the collection–all semester and there is still more
to do. Still, I am proud of the progress that that project has made, especially
since I started last August.
Everyone here has been
working hard doing a variety of different tasks to scan documents, create metadata
for them, and upload them on the Claremont Colleges Digital Library. However,
there are other tasks involved in this project. We have created a social media
campaign to spread awareness about the project and collection. We have
contributed to this blog in order to track the project’s progress and share our
experiences. We have been to conferences and some of us have even presented at
conferences so that we can participate in the larger discourse about archives,
special collections, environmental history, and water resources.
There are many facets to the
project which is one reason it has been so amazing to be a part of the CLIR
Water project. I can’t wait to see how this project continues to evolve.
