Final Project

Spring, 2010 – Professor Cool

GSLIS 709 – Research and Bibliographic Methods

“Survey of research methods in library and information studies; supervised individual project to fulfill research requirement of the New York State Department of Education.”


I chose to do a hands-on final project: I migrated 500+ vintage postcards from ContentDM platform to the open-source platform called Omeka. I then wrote a paper that chronicled the experience and the lessons I learned. “Postcards from the New York Waterways” is available here, and my final paper is available in a pdf.

My reflections on this project can be seen in “About the Redesign.”
