PW-264121-19

Historical Society of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA 19107-5699)
Margery Sly (Project Director: July 2018 to present)
In Her Own Right: A Century of Women's Activism, 1820-1920

The digitization of 30 linear feet of archives and manuscripts pertaining to the woman suffrage movement held by member repositories of the Philadelphia Area Consortium for Special Collections Libraries (PACSCL) and other institutions in the region.

The core of our work will be digitizing and describing manuscript and some printed materials documenting women working for their own and for others’ rights in the century leading up to the woman suffrage vote in 1920, held in area institutions, irrespective of the geographic focus of the collection itself. The digitized material will be served up through a robust web presence that provides access to well-described digital items; the capacity to manipulate the descriptive data to generate new scholarly products; and other resources that will serve students and scholars studying not only women’s work leading up to the 1920 vote for woman suffrage but countless other topics as well. A two-year implementation grant, beginning in 2019, will ensure that a significant portion of the material will be digitized and online prior to the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, with collection-level records calling out those collections still to be digitized.

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.
