A Catalyst for Social Activism: The Digital Black Bibliography Project
MetadataShow full item record
This ppt presentation details a collaborative proof of concept project called Digital Black Bibliography (DiBB) that sought to provide scholars with the tools to compile, preserve, manipulate, and interpret Africana cultural history as represented in seminal black historical bibliography texts. The project objectives were to transform printed bibliographies into more granular data that scholars could use to search, analyze, and expand the understanding of bibliographies. The works used in the project were of two seminal bibliographers, Prof. Dorothy Porter Wesley's A Catalogue of The African Collection and Prof. Abdul Alkalimat (Gerald McWhorter)'s Afro-Scholar newsletters.
DescriptionThis project is transitioning from DiBB to a new platform and direction for the future.
