Upcoming Event: Presentation at GLAM Cafe, Chemical Heritage Foundation, Tuesday, December 13
Join us for a regularly scheduled GLAM Cafe and PhillyDH meeting on Tuesday, December 13, at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, starting at 5:00. There will be a presentation by Margaret Graham, who will discuss “In Her Own Right: Women Asserting Their Civil Rights, 1820-1920”, a new digital collections project involving Philadelphia-area institutions.
The multi-institution project focuses on historical materials documenting the struggle for women’s rights in the century leading to the passage of the 19th Amendment. Featuring materials from PACSCL (Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries) collections, the project looks at the region’s tradition of women working to expand their rights and opportunities, and examines the ways in which many different women were working in different spheres in support of women’s social, cultural and political rights.
The co-principal investigators are Margaret Graham, Managing Archivist, Drexel University College of Medicine Legacy Center, Margery N. Sly, Director of Temple University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center, and Heather Willever-Farr, Manager of Digital Services, Historical Society of Pennsylvania.
Margaret has been leading the project’s technology working group and will discuss content, metadata, and technology at the GLAM Cafe at the Chemical Heritage Foundation on December 13, 2016, 6.00 p.m. Learn more about GLAM Cafe at: https://www.meetup.com/GLAM-Cafe-Philadelphia/
