• A Community Approach to Discovering the September 11 LOC Web Archive

      Bingley, Matthew (2012-05-01)
      The Library of Congress September 11 Web Archive contains more websites than is reasonably analyzable by a single researcher. This project demonstrates the design of a site, titled “Source September 11,” which would enlist volunteers to analyze the Archive‟s contents. Moreover, the proposed site would allow volunteers to produce original, curated WebStories about themes in the September 11 Web Archive. The proposed site would thus have a dual function as a research and civic site, and one in which volunteers participate in its maintenance and functioning. This thesis is intended to be read in conjunction with a video overview which demonstrates the site. It can be found at http://people.sunyit.edu/~binglem/Thesis2/Thesis2.html.
