Digital Harlem, a website created academics from History and Archaeology, wins the ABC-CLIO Online History Award

Digital Harlem, a collaboration between academics in the Department of History and the Archaeological Computing Laboratory (ACL), has won the ABC-CLIO Online History Award. The award is given by the American Library Association, and recognises ‘a person or a group of people producing (1) a freely available online historical collection, or (2) an online tool tailored for the purpose of finding historical materials, or (3) an online teaching aid stimulating creative historical scholarship’.

The Digital Harlem website presents information, drawn from legal records, newspapers and other archival and published sources, about everyday life in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood in the years 1915-1930

The website is the result of a collaboration between History’s Associate Professor Stephen Robertson, his colleagues Professor Stephen Garton and Professor Shane White, and the Archaeological Computing Laboratory, all from SOPHI.

Congratulations to all involved.
