Brooklyn Collection and Site report #3 (due 3/22)

On Monday we visited the Brooklyn Collection at the Brooklyn Public Library to examine newspaper articles, photographs, books, historic fire insurance maps, and more. We had a quick introduction to various digitized collections that you can search from home, including city directories, historic photographs, and the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. If you missed the class visit, you must visit on your own. Be sure to take photos and document primary sources you find that are relevant to your group’s hypotheses.

Site report #3 is due by the start of class on Wednesday, March 22. Download the template, save with a new filename that includes your last name, and when you’ve completed it, save as a reduced file size PDF and upload to our OpenLab course site.
