Preparing for the Vermont History Expo 2014

Tickled pink it's an Expo Year!

On Friday 4/18, Karyn Norwood and Erenst Anip visited The Woodstock Historical Society to attend Exhibit Workshop organized by the Vermont Historical Society. They offered five sessions of this workshop in Bennington, Middlebury, Barre, Woodstock, and Brownington. These full day sessions are free of charge thanks to a grant from the Patrick Foundation and each are followed by a reception for Cultural Heritage Professionals.

We took part in this workshop as we are preparing for VTDNP’s second participation (Karyn & Erenst’s first time) at the Vermont History Expo 2014. We are excited to showcase what we have to offer with our digitized content available freely on Chronicling America website. We are even more excited to show attendees our value added projects to further assist users in taking full advantage of the wonderful resources that is digitized historic newspapers not just from Vermont, but also from the rest of the country; all 7.5 million pages of them (as of April 26, 2014) . VTDNP crew will also incorporate this year’s theme “Artist and Artisans: Vermont’s Creative Heritage” to our booth.  Stay tuned for more updates as we get ready for a weekend in Tunbridge on June 21-22. So save the date and see you there!
