On the Books: Jim Crow and Algorithms of Resistance Online

On the Books is building on the products of the IMLS-funded project, Ensuring Democracy through Digital Access, to create a plain-text corpus of over one hundred years of North Carolina session laws. In addition to creating this corpus, the project team is using text analysis methods to identify Jim Crow laws. This webinar will provide an overview of the project and will cover the context and importance of the project. The project team will present deliverables, discuss the variety of roles needed to create collections as data, and how the University Libraries is building capacity for this type of work. Lastly, we will discuss the outreach component of the project, and how we are engaging with others to facilitate the use of our collection by research and learning communities.
