Do you need the Copyright?

It seems like a big question is what the resources are to be used for - how they are to be used. That would influence what information you need. From my vantage point, I am thinking about how do you showcase what is available In a way that is clean, informative, and not “cluttered”. And when thinking about web information - making sure it is accessible.

Categorize by year, color code by region…
Michelle Pilati
40:44
Can’t use color for meaning for accessibility reasons.
Vincent Romo
40:59
Ah
Robert Bond
44:12
Can "tags" be used and then have a search function?
Rosie Kar
44:18
I would also indicate type of source: photograph, painting, letter, cry for help
Michelle Pilati
44:19
You can have the information displayed in different ways - if you have an inaccessible tool, that’s OK - as long as you also have it presented in an accessible way.

The MET has a cool setup that is easy to use: https://www.metmuseum.org/toah/chronology/#!?time=06&geo=af

Will anything on the website be open to contribution? In other words, if we find a new source, would we be able to add to your database?
Anu Mande
48:36
What kind of search tools will the website include?
Anu Mande
49:42
Yes, let’s include it
Javier Gonzalez-Meeks
50:12
Agreed, let's include it
Michelle Pilati
55:49
We’re not developing a new website with specific search tools - we’re limited to the capabilities that already exist. As noted earlier, we can have curated collections that makes sense from whatever perspective - and we can make a database that is not accessible available. I think that might be the right “balance”. And if some expected structure is defined for those collections, we can add more and more as they are developed.

ASCCC’s list-servs are one-way - pushing information out. But another sort can be created - most likely using Google - but someone has to take responsibility for monitoring it.
Julie Johnson (she/her)
57:54
I would be interested in supporting
Anu Mande
01:00:44
That’s great
Rosie Kar
01:07:17
May I also suggest including PT fac/adjuncts in these communications? Having been part of that community for too long, and only having recently escaped the adjunct vortex, it is important to include those folks
Rosie Kar
