The ITPS Research Database is (for now) a staff-only resource for cataloguing, digitizing, and analyzing items from the TPNHA Archive. The data from the Research Database will be imported into an OMEKA instance along with images to create the Digital Archive. We anticipate this process could begin as soon as Fall 2022.
For now, ITPS staff are cleaning up the digital records we were able to create prior to campus shutting down in March 2020. We are happy to share some very preliminary “shape of data” visualizations on this page. These will be updated as cataloguing and data cleaning proceed.
As of December 1, 2020, ITPS staff have identified 576 items in the collection. We estimate there are approximately 1,000 items total. In person cataloguing is scheduled to resume in Fall 2021, pandemic permitting.
