Mapping Renewal (Web Resources)
Title: Mapping Renewal
Author: Center for Arkansas History and Culture
Abstract: The Mapping Renewal beta website focused on creating access and providing context to segregation and urban renewal in the city of Little Rock, Arkansas. Geographic segregation in Little Rock was, in part, the result of urban renewal projects of the kind that swept the nation in the mid-twentieth century. In the 1960s, urban renewal in central Little Rock comprised one of the largest demolition and clearance programs in the country. Instead of reinvigorating the city, these programs, like so many others carried out across the U.S., further promoted segregation and white flight. Mapping Renewal aims to make valuable humanities content widely accessible through digitization and geolocation of a unique compilation of materials that will allow a range of users to integrate the history of Little Rock into larger studies of the twentieth-century American metropolis.

Mapping Our Past, Envisioning Our Future: GIS Technology in Archives (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Mapping Our Past, Envisioning Our Future: GIS Technology in Archives
Author: Shannon Lausch
Abstract: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offer rich tools that enable archives to locate their collection materials on a map. Creative possibilities abound, from guiding visitors through a story map to charting a city's growth throughout centuries. Before beginning such a project, archivists must consider the expertise and partners needed to make it successful. Panelists will discuss their GIS-based projects, including how to forge new partnerships, address audiences' needs, and adapt archival descriptive practices across disciplines.
