Title:eBlackChampaign-Urbana: Community Informatics meets Data Curation
Author(s):Lenstra, Noah
Subject(s):community informatics, eBlackCU, cultural heritage, collaborative digitization, eBlackStudies, archives
Abstract:eBlack Champaign-Urbana is a campuscommunity collaborative that digitizes, aggregates and adds-value to historical information on the African-American experience in Champaign-Urbana. Our goals are to find new ways to connect this information to both community and academic research and information needs. This project fits within citizen curation/citizen science (Hand, 2010) -- the curation of data not only by and for academic researchers, but also by and for citizens and communities, both for their own purposes and for scholarly needs.
