This report describes the continuation of a previous Interactive Qualifying Project, titled “Unbuilt WPI”. Our project was to transform the research done on these “unbuilt” buildings into a user-friendly website interface, housed with the WPI archives site that could be accessible to students and alumni alike. The Omeka software system was utilized as a framework on which our website was built. The data retrieved, both written and pictured, was organized into Items and Exhibits on the website. Screenshots of each website page are included in this report. This project ties together technology and history, providing a medium for readily exchanging information about WPI’s past that would have been previously inaccessible to the general public.
