Morehouse College (Atlanta, GA 30314-3776)
Aaron Michael Carter-Enyi (Project Director: July 2018 to present)
Africana Digital Ethnography Project Collection Accessibility Program (ADEPt-CAP)

The cataloging and annotation of 40,000 born-digital sound recordings, moving images, and photographs that document the ethnography, music, and languages of African and African diaspora communities, for access via the Atlanta University Center’s library digital repository.

The primary work for the grant period is to catalogue and annotate a large inventory of born-digital recorded sound, moving images and photographs (over 40,000 files) for posting in our open-access repository and educational YouTube channels. The scholars involved in the Africana Digital Ethnography Project (ADEPt) have gathered extensive field recordings for a decade, with more to come before the start of the grant period (May 2019). The primary means of access to the collection will be through the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library’s open-access repository currently hosted by bepress’s Digital Commons (digitalcommons.auctr.edu/adept). Early into the grant period, content in the current Digital Commons repository will be migrated to an Islandora open-source system. All entries will be indexed on Google Scholar and WorldCat. Video clips will also be available on YouTube to maximize public engagement.
