CPI Student Jasmine Housman Creates Digital Collections
February 4, 2021
CPI student Jasmine Housman has been working in Special Collections and Archives and recently completed two digital collections that are now available for worldwide access. The first, the United States Land Records Collection consists of thirteen land sale records from the Blackfoot, Idaho U.S. Land Office for land purchased in Pocatello in 1892 and 1902. The second collection, the William Hogarth Prints, are a series of engravings created by Hogarth, an English painter and engraver who lived from 1697 – 1764. Students enrolled in courses with Dr. Roger Schmidt use these prints on a regular semester basis, and will now be able to access them remotely.
Since 2013, CPI students working in Special Collections have digitized, created metadata for, and uploaded onto the web, 16 digital collections. Students enrolled in courses from the Department of History as well as Global Studies have contributed their time and efforts in getting another three collections digitized and up online.
