The Digital Drawer: A Crowd-Sourced, Curated, Digital Archive Preserving History and Memory

The development and testing of the Digital Drawer project on digitized community archives for rural Georgia audiences. The project partners include the Historic Rural Churches of Georgia and Emory University.

The Digital Drawer is a collaborative partnership among Georgia Tech, Emory University’s Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) and the Historic Rural Churches of Georgia (HRCGA) to pilot a method of gathering, curating and disseminating crowd-sourced community memory. This effort of the state library system, universities, humanities and non-profit organizations is testing an online concept through a program permitting Georgians to upload their carefully preserved documents, photographs, images of artifacts, and oral memories of historic churches that were the foundation of their community life. The project seeks to develop and pilot a cloud-hosted media and metadata repository and public-facing web application for submitting content to the archive. The Digital Drawer will be designed to accommodate the limited technical capacity of an anticipated older demographic with disabilities.
