Just published: Final report of the Lighting the Way project

November 29, 2021
by M.A. Matienzo

The Lighting the Way project team is pleased to announce the publication of Facilitating and Illuminating Emergent Futures for Archival Discovery and Delivery: The Final Report of the Lighting the Way Project.  Lighting the Way focused on exploring how networks of people and technology impact archival discovery and delivery (how people find, access, and use material from archives and special collections) and focused on engaging directly with practitioners – archives, library, and technology workers – involved in this work, across roles, job functions, areas of expertise, and levels of positional power. Through a series of in-person and virtual events, the project applied participatory, generative facilitation methods to allow participants to develop future-oriented visions of how to transform archival delivery while also bringing their own experience to bear. The final report is available through the Stanford Digital Repository at its DOI (doi:10.25740/jm302fq5311) and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

I am pleased to announce the addition of the Cumhuriyet Digital Archive database to Stanford Libraries collections. The oldest secular and one of the most influential newspapers in Turkey, Cumhuriyet (“The Republic”) was founded by journalist Yunus Nadi Abalıoğlu at the initiative of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk on 7 May 1924 and published continuously since its first edition.
