Historical Society of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA 19107-5699)
Margery Sly (Project Director: July 2015 to October 2017)
In Her Own Right: Women Asserting their Civil Rights, 1820-1920

A planning project to develop a digital collection of archival sources pertaining to women’s rights in the 19th to early 20th centuries and held by 11 Philadelphia-area repositories, and to digitize an initial set of 1,500 items and produce a prototype website.

The Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries (PACSCL) (via fiscal sponsor HSP) seeks a $39,500 planning grant to explore options for a multi-repository project to digitize and curate content around the struggles for women's rights in the century leading up to the passage of the 19th Amendment, drawing on 55 relevant high research value collections in 11 member institutions totaling 614 linear feet of material. The grant will result in both a pilot website and a comprehensive plan for its continued development, including the creation of a set of online resources that, if then funded and implemented, will result in a nationally significant body of primary source material of great timeliness and lasting impact.
