In this project we partnered with local, state, and federal actors to digitze and exhibit special collections from the Macon Middle Georgia Archives; and we deliver an open source digitization workflow management software solution ADA (Archive Digitization Application) and a case study of the Macon experience. The Digital Community Heritage Project was supported by the Knight Foundation.
Ideally, this high profile pilot project will inspire and provide a foundation of tools for replication across city archives in the United States, and directly engage neighborhood communities in better understanding how they came to be an how they interrelate with one another in confronting the municipal challenges of the present.
