Digital Archive: Chinese Railroad Workers in North America (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Digital Archive: Chinese Railroad Workers in North America
Author: Gabriel Wolfenstein
Author: Gordon Chang
Author: Shelley Fisher Fishkin
Author: Roland Hsu
Author: Hilton Obenzinger
Abstract: The second digital product will be the “Stanford University Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Digital Archive” (the “Archive.”) We are designing this as the world’s leading and enduring resource for future generations of historians and the general public. It will be hosted by Stanford University Libraries in perpetuity. The Archive is the achievement of our Stanford research administrative team, and our goal is to open the archive, attract a worldwide audience, and guide users through search and discovery. Visitors to the Archive will be welcomed with two leading-edge digital features: A) Digital “Exhibits.” We will build digital “exhibits” through the Stanford Digital Repository “Spotlight” portal. Each digital “exhibit” will illuminate a small selection of items from our archive with short one thousand-word explanatory essays. The selections and the essays in exhibit format have been shown to attract new audiences. Visitors will in this way take a guided “tour” of the Archive, and gain insight and appreciation in a short amount of time. Our team will curate the “exhibits.” The digital format also gives us the chance to offer “guest curatorships” to professional scholars, teachers, and possibly amateur historians for an expanding series of digital exhibits using our open Archive. B) Digital “Visualizations.” We will build visual representations to serve as the interactive interface for scholars to use the Archive. For advanced scholars and general audiences alike, the visualizations will illuminate meanings and patterns in our unprecedented treasury of sources. Prototypes have been developed to indicate the sites along the rail route for which we have richest collected sources; other visualizations highlight where we need more discovery.
