Volunteer Opportunities:

 Wayne State University’s Chapter of the NDSA provides many opportunities for distance and on-campus students to participate in digital stewardship.

A.  Gordon L. Grosscup Museum of Anthropology

Volunteers are needed to help digitize slides and other materials at WSU’s Gordon L. Grosscup Museum of Anthropology.  Please contact Adam Mosseri  at adam.mosseri@wayne.edu if you are interested.  At this point, all work is done on-campus.

B.  Open Projects (Contact Kim Schroeder at ag1797@wayne.edu if you are interested in any of the following projects)

 1.  SLIS DSpace Project–WayneBrain

Volunteers are still needed to contribute to the growth of our SLIS digital archive, called WayneBrain.

Examples of volunteer opportunities here are:

-Scan/upload images to the repository (on-campus).

-Catalogue (i.e. provide metadata) the uploaded images.

-Research old faculty publications for inclusion in the archive.

2.  Web Capture

Kim is working on a “web capture” tool research project.  Please email Kim for details.

More information about these projects and more can be found in this document NDSA_Resume_Builders

Also, NDSA activities are largely student driven.  If you have any suggestions about potential projects or activities (e.g. tours, speakers, lectures), please contact the faculty advisor, Kim Schroeder, at ag1797@wayne.edu.
