The Featured Collections Working group is grew out of the 2020 CT Humanities-funded Connecticut Collections Alliance grant that created more than a dozen topic-based collections presented in the CTDA. This group is focusing on gathering and presenting curated sets of primary source materials related to underrepresented communities and topics.
This group is currently seeking new members.
The Metadata Working Group has its origins in the CT Humanities-funded Connecticut Collections Alliance grant. This group will begin its work by doing a metadata audit of the repostory to learn more about how repository objects and collections are described now, and from there, working from models already developed in the metadata community, create intellectual and descriptive approaches to enhancing metadata to create a more inclusive descriptive approach to primary sources.
This group is forming now.
