Montpelier Digital Collections Project

The planning of an online collections platform that will aggregate four distinct collections held by James Madison’s Montpelier, the historic house and surrounding area administered by The Montpelier Foundation. The project team will convene a three-day workshop of leading digital cultural heritage professionals, scholars in American history and culture, and descendants of Montpelier’s enslaved families.

This project will bring together leading humanities scholars, museum professionals, digital heritage experts, and members of the public in a 2 ½-day workshop to design an online, publicly accessible digital library that integrates four collections: architecture/historic preservation, archaeology, archives, and decorative arts. The digital library will be created for the collections at James Madison’s Montpelier in partnership with Michigan State University’s MATRIX: The Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences, and designed to be easily adapted by other institutions. The workshop will consist of 1½ days of presentations by leaders in the digital humanities, followed by a day of of breakout sessions and group discussions. The workshop will result in a white paper synthesizing the findings and recommendations of participants that will be shared on multiple websites and by social media.
