Well back at school already…break went by too quickly for myself as I am sure the rest of you but plenty of work was accomplished! With the impeding launching of the images site, MARCH 15th check out our site, we spent spring break uploading our pictures and while it is not a very difficult task, uploading a number of images is very time consuming. I did enjoy looking through the pictures and finding that some were from actual photographers not just The Bullet or The Battlefield. I think seeing Mary Washington through the eyes of a student in the 1960s was a real eye opener, especially seeing a student smoking while studying in her dorm or even the thought of asking permission for a male to escort a student to Ring Dance. Mary Washington has changed alot over the years but some things have stayed the same, the traditions and the student pride will not waver and I think alumni would agree!
I think we did run into a few bumps, maybe someone from the hospital group would be more knowlegdable about how to work with the exhibits in omeka and how to better manage them…any tips?!?
