I am a Project Archivist at Emory University‚Äôs Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL). I spend my day arranging and describing the papers of Robert W. Woodruff, Atlanta‚Äôs most successful businessman and most generous philanthropist. I spend my nights and weekends collaborating with a colleague on ‚ÄúAn Invisible History: A Digital Research Project to Document Segregation and Civil Rights in Atlanta.‚Äù In an effort to bring together qualitative and quantitative data about Atlanta, ‚ÄúAn Invisible History‚Äù extracts data from rare and unique materials from MARBL and then compiles it within a geographic information system (GIS). It represents an effort to move beyond the concept of a ‚Äúdigital collection,‚Äù digitally reformatted surrogates of non-digital items, to a Digital Humanities research project. I also practice Moo Duk Kwan Tae Kwon Do.
