Volunteer of the Month – September 2013

Jessica Macaulay

Digital Imaging Unit Volunteer

From February – August 2013 I volunteered two afternoons a week to work in the Digital Imaging Unit under the direction of Malcolm and Susan. During the course of my time in the DIU I participated in a number of projects ranging including cropping images for the online book reader, enriching the metadata for the online images of the Rashid al-Din, and researching a number of images and objects for key-wording before they were uploaded into flickr.  At the end of my stint I was able to assist in setting up a twitter account for the CRC (@UofECRC) in order to help promote the physical and online collections and have continued to contribute to the twitter account from Canada.
