Practicum Report

As part of my MILS practicum I worked as an intern at the Brooklyn Museum for six months as part of the CHART program (IMLS Grant). During my internship I digitized numerous historic photos of Brooklyn New York from around the turn of the 20th century. Many hours of research were also done in order to lend historical context to the scanned photos. The end result leaves the question of how to best present this compiled information to the public. This project examines current trends in geolocation ā€” tying an artifact to a physical space ā€” as well as my efforts in creating a geolocation system.
