•  We have created a ‘brainstorming’ forum that allows scholars, graduate students, librarians and curators who are working on primary sources around the world to be connected via an ongoing intellectual dialogue with like-minded professionals and to discuss the materials they are working on. The forum is designed in such a way that you can post pictures of the materials you are working on with a comment about what you need from the Community. It will be up to other members to give you their opinion, insights, ideas, etc.
