Expanding Enslaved Hub: Peoples of the Historical Slave Trade

Expanding the data platform of Enslaved: Peoples of the Historical Slave Trade (Enslaved.org) through the addition of ten digital collections ranging from those held at small, local institutions to those at large, university-based special collections in the mid-Atlantic, the Carolinas, and the Lower Mississippi. These additional data sets would increase the Enslaved.org linked open data platform to approximately 1.3 million records.

This proposed project, “Expanding Enslaved Hub: Peoples of the Historical Slave Trade,” submitted to the Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Division of Preservation and Access, will support linking digital collections from ten collaborators to the Enslaved.org linked open data platform. The project will convene meetings to engage with stakeholders and build community around the long term sustainability of Enslaved.org and collections related to the study of historical slavery.
