Bass Library L01 (lower level of the library)
We will discuss a small but growing number of web sites created and edited collaboratively by librarians, curators, faculty and students featuring collections and items available in Yale repositories relevant to specific areas of disciplinary research. These sites extend the possibilities of traditional subject guides by allowing for tagging and providing an environment where scholarship and teaching materials based on the featured collections can also be highlighted. We will also demonstrate how these portals are set up in Drupal, an open source content management system now being offered at the university.
Projects to be discussed include:
• Yale Slavery and Abolition Portal
• Yale American Indian Studies Portal
• Unbecoming British: Material Culture in Early America
