webwise.jpg March 3, 2010. Project Vietnam, a collaboration among CCNMTL, WGBH Media Library and Archives, and the University of Massachusetts–Boston, will be presented at the 2010 WebWise Conference on Libraries and Museums in the Digital World being held today, March 3 through March 5.

The WebWise Conference, sponsored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and co-hosted by the University of Denver and the Denver Art Museum, will address the successes and innovations of the past as well as the opportunities and challenges faced by museums and libraries navigating the future. The conference theme, "Imagining the Digital Future," will be explored in a variety of topics including online learning spaces, digital repository management, and new tools and services for discovery and access. Project Vietnam was selected for a project demonstration, which will be conducted by CCNMTL's partners, WGBH Boston. This project was launched in 2008 with the goal of digitizing, preserving, and disseminating filmed interviews and stock footage from the 1983 WGBH series Vietnam: A Television History. Today, the project provides an online archive and workspace where students can analyze, annotate, and incorporate footage from the series into multimedia projects. WGBH will present Project Vietnam at the conference and share how professors and students at Columbia University are using the archive and analysis tools to enhance teaching and learning of the War.
