Under the direction of Robert Wicks, Director of the Miami University Art Museum, the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology (GBL) at Indiana University and the Kansas City Kansas Public Library are collaborating with the Wyandotte Nation to assemble digital versions of primary historical sources documenting the Huron/Wyandot experience across the Midwest. The documents will be collected from public and private archives, libraries, museums, historical societies, and collections across the United States and elsewhere. The digital images of these will be compiled with searchable transcriptions and commentaries to be accessed as the Wyandot History Digital Archive (WHDA). Physically, each of these collections are separate; organized and described differently. Metadata standards do not wholly represent the native experience or narrative. Panelists will describe their collections and then discuss policy, editorial standards, and workflow processes for this collaborative platform.
