The Sampler Archive Project: Phase 2

The second phase of development of the Sampler Archive, an online digital repository and searchable database of images and descriptive information about American girlhood samplers and pictorial embroideries from the 17th through the 19th centuries.

The purpose of the Sampler Archive Project is to create an online digital repository and searchable database that brings together digital images and detailed descriptive information on American girlhood samplers and pictorial embroideries from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. The Sampler Archive Project: Phase 2 will build on the work already completed in Phase 1 by: (a) increasing the number of museum objects in the online database from 300 to 2300; (b) increasing the types of contributors the project can work with by developing protocols for non-institutional partners; and (c) enhancing the Sampler Archive's website to increase functionality for scholars and other audiences.
