CDP: Notes from the field

Over the course of the 2 year Community Digitization Project, our Digitization Facilitators published a series of newsletters tracking project progress, stories, and points of interest.

Look back through our Notes from the Field newsletters:

Issue 1: Our three Digitization Facilitators have started working with the Haldimand County, South River and Petawawa & Head, Clara & Maria partnerships. Here are Stephanie Cann, Krista McCracken and Morgan Peachey- Dupon’s first Notes from the Field.

Issue 2: The CDP Digitization Facilitators are building some fabulous digital collections for the Haldimand County, South River and Petawawa & Head, Clara & Maria partnerships…

Issue 3: With its first phase almost done, the Community Digitization Project is actively adding new pieces to Ontario’s online history. The Haldimand County, South River and Petawawa & Head, Clara & Maria online collections are growing…

Issue 4: Phase 2 of the Community Digitization Project is well underway. New projects at the Thessalon, Prince Edward County and Clarence- Rockland partnerships are taking shape. Stephanie Cann and Krista McCracken share updates from Phase 1 and notes from their new locations. Also, please welcome Dominique DuFour to the Digitization Facilitator team!

Issue 5: We’re right at the bridge between Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the Community Digitization Project and there’s lots to report. The Thessalon, Prince Edward County and Clarence-Rockland collections are growing. We welcome new Facilitator Brigitte Campeau and wish Krista McCracken bonne chance! Please read on for progress notes, special events and more…

Issue 6: Phase 3 of the Community Digitization Project is full steam ahead!

For more news, photos and special events, read on…

Issue 7: This is an amazing time for the CDP: we’re still looking forward, but have some distance to reflect back on as well. Phase 2 will finish this month and Phase 3 is slowly being handed off to the Assistants. Far from winding down, though, the CDP partnerships are still very active. Some CDP staffers are working in other, related positions; partnerships have new staff to continue building their collections; and others are dedicating time and existing staff to sustain their digitization projects. Read on for our Facilitators’ updates from their projects and a glimpse of the CDP in a national context…
