We created a user-friendly website application with a database backend that will safely store and clearly present data relating to the Virginia printing trade before the 1820s. Our online application is intended for use by students, researchers, and any individual in the general public with an interest in the history of printing in Virginia. The website application is intended to be maintained by historical researchers who will be able to continuously update and refine the database as new information on Virginia printing is uncovered. While our project goal was to create a website for the imprints, newspapers, and biographies we currently have on the Virginia printing trade before the 1820s, we hope that our design will allow for continual expansion of the data in the future.
