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

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access to historical documents and artifacts from a variety of institutions,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.
