Jane Addams Papers Project
The Jane Addams Papers Project is a project being conducted at Ramapo College of New Jersey with the goal of digitizing Jane Addams’ papers from 1901 to 1935. As a research assistant, I researched and wrote the biographies of those who have corresponded with Jane Addams for the project’s website, using resources such as Ancestry and Newspapers.com. I also assisted with grant work by researching grants the program could apply to and drafting grant proposals. In addition, I worked on publicity for the project by writing blog posts. The project has exposed me to Omeka, a web-publishing program for digital archives and collections, and Basecamp, software for project management and team communication.
