This report describes the techniques we used to assist the transition of the Modern American Poetry Site (MAPS) from an obsolescent version to a modern iteration. MAPS’s editors updated the site with a more robust content management system. We assisted this transition by creating MAPS pages for a school of poetry and a new poet; adding old and new content to an existing poet's page; assembling a historical timeline; and laying the foundations of a contributor's guide. We conclude the report with a display of our results and recommendations for further work with MAPS.
