Dickinson Carlisle Indian School Digital Resource Center Talk (YARG)
Dickinson Carlisle Indian School Digital Resource Center Talk (YARG) In-Person / Online
On Monday June 27 from 3-4 PM, the Yale Archival Reading Group (YARG) will host Jim Gerencser and Kate Theimer to discuss their work with Dickinson’s Carlisle Indian School Digital Resource Center. Funded with Mellon Foundation, NEH, and NHPRC support, Dickinson Carlisle Indian School Digital Resource Center offers a centralized place for researchers to access digitized materials that tell the story of the school and the many thousands of students who were sent there. Over the past eight years, this project has developed partnerships with institutions, including the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, which hold additional records regarding the school, its many students, and its instructors. The Dickinson Carlisle Indian School Digital Resource Center also offers individuals the ability to contribute their own digitized photos, documents, oral histories, and other personal materials to the online collection.
The talk will be approximately 30 minutes followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions. Attendees are asked to visit and review the Dickinson’s Carlisle Indian School Digital Resource Center site in advance of the talk. The talk will be given in a hybrid format and attendees may attend in person or on Zoom. The program will not be recorded. Masks must be worn in the classroom. All YUL Library staff are welcome to attend.
