So today, my research partner and I are turning in the first draft of our website. I cannot put words into Dakota’s mouth, but I can say that I am very excited and nervous. This first draft is an acclimation of all of our digging and researching.
I do have to sat that making the site was interesting, especially with me being missing for several days on a ROTC training trip. But looking at it now, I am very proud of what we were able to do. I do know that there is going to have to be edits before the final product, but I think we have a wonderful beginning.
Below is the link to our site. Let me know what you think.
On other news, today after the Century America class, I will be going to get written permission from The Post about using the images from The Big Stone Gap Post during the Great War that I found on microfilm. Right now I have an email from someone at the paper (Saved in my inbox to be safe) telling me that its okay to use the images as long as I cite the current newspaper. But I want to be doubly sure and safe. So that way I know I fulfilled all copyright requirements.
So I’ll have a nice hour drive ahead of me. But I think it will be wonderful to meet all the newspaper staff in person, and not just over the technology of phones and computers.
Besides that, I cannot think of anything else. So until next time.
