Current Status: Project completed December 24, 1999
Project staff digitized collections on site here in May, June, and
September 1999. The College's
Catalogues (1822-1900) and the Coeducation
Collection are now available online. We are currently completing
two more manuscript collections: the papers of Orra White Hitchcock (from
the Edward and Orra White Hitchcock Papers) and portions of the Snell Family
Papers. We expect that these collections will be available online
in October 1999.
An unpublished report by Barbara Currier, "Special
Approaches to Women's Education: A Model Coeducational Plan" (1969),
was digitized using optical character recognition (OCR) in the summer of
1999 and is available online (searchable as free text).
|Mount Holyoke College:
In September 1998, all collections scheduled for inclusion in
the project were completed and are available online.
In May 1999, all collections scheduled for inclusion in the
project were completed and are available online.
Also ... an online exhibit, "'A
Perennial Blessing': Celebrating Sophia Smith," was mounted in February
1997 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Sophia Smith's birth. It documents
Sophia Smith's life and legacy by displaying a large selection of contemporary
sources and original materials from the Smith College Archives. The exhibit
was adapted from one that was on view in the Archives in 1996. The Web
version was prepared by Peter Nelson.
|University of Massachusetts-Amherst:
|The project team digitized nine collections in July, August and September
1999, including oral histories,
selected records of the Dean of Women
and the President, Student
Handbooks, and selected photograph collections.
