Nantucket Atheneum, Nantucket Town & County Clerk'
Nantucket's public and historic records are maintained by many different institutions and are kept in various forms. The project's goal was to address this fragmentation and find a way to improve access to public and historic records on Nantucket. The team researched other collaborative digitization projects and interviewed record-holding organizations on the island to create an inventory of existing records and to gauge interest in the creation of a single website to provide access to Nantucket's records. The team identified the key steps for a successful digital collaborative project, developed a prototype records database and web interface, and recommended how Nantucket should move this effort forward.
