SESSION 310 - Database Management: Challenges for Military Records on the Home Front

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using military records as case studies, panelists share how they make information available from their databases.  Short presentations on projects dealing with legacy databases include a citizen archivist project to create a database for previously unknown revolutionary records, a project to make available World War II diaries at the US Air Force Academy,  a database set up to provide access to military oral histories, and an overview of accessing US Marine Corps records, all of which should engender discussion about finding records and what archivists do to facilitate working with databases that are not user-friendly.
