Spring 2020 Digital Archives Class

This semester, my class INFO 665 Projects in Digital Archives will be working on two LGBT History projects: one with the NYC Gay Center, and the other with the Lesbian Herstory Archives.  For the Gay Center project, the class will be working to finish up a project started last semester to restore a public television program “Gay Morning America” from the early 1980s contained on U-Matic tape.  The collection digitized thus far is available via this Omeka S site.  For the Lesbian Herstory Archive, the class will be restoring a radio program from the early 1970s called “Lesbian Nation,” produced by Martha Shelly. The collection is on open reel tape. The completed work will be found on the site we have hosted for LHA for many years.
