Building Faculty and Community Collaboration

It all started in 2011, when USF’s Community Design Outreach program collaborated with the National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS) on a project documenting Confienement_STO00011-300x233artifacts and sites from the Japanese American Confinement period, funded by the National Park Services (NPS). The project was initially envisioned as a website with approximately 250 images of plans and drawings of Japanese American prison camps of World War II as well as photos of artifacts from NJAHS’s collection that relate to the sites. The project director contacted Gleeson Library for consultation on indexing and data structure.
