On July 30, 2016 Stan Prager did a presentation at History Camp at Holyoke Community College on the letters of George W. Gould and digital archiving techniques. The complete PowerPoint presentation is available below, although it lacks the audio narration.
Title: Civil War Letters: Resurrecting Lost Voices — DIY Digital Archiving
Presenter: Stan Prager
Description: A chance encounter with the previously unpublished Civil War letters of a Massachusetts soldier killed at the battle of Cold Harbor led to a project that digitized & transcribed this correspondence, and the creation of a website to share it for public access. This presentation discusses this kind of Do-it-Yourself (DIY) digital archiving that can be achieved on a shoestring budget with today’s technology.
