Neighborhood of Saturdays

This digital collection was created as one of the end results of an ethnography course by Dr. Susan Hyatt.  As part of the course, undergraduate students conducted interviews with neighborhood residents, held scan-a-thons for the collection of images and documents from the community members, and synthesized all of this material into a published monograph. IUPUI University Library assisted the students with the scan-a-thons, conducting several in class informational sessions to prepare with the community atteneded events.  The Library aslo assisted in the collection, organization, public access, and archiving of the the images found in the Neighborhood of Satrudays digital collection.

As a means to support other research classes interested in hold scan-a-thons, below is a list of documents used to guide this process as well as brief lesson plans on in-class information sessions suggested prior to holding a community scan-a thon.
