Presentation Description

Communities Accumulating Research and Documenting Information on North Carolina Area Landmarks (CARDINAL) is a multidisciplinary online project under development by a small group of graduate students in library science, digital media, and rhetoric at North Carolina State University and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Cardinal uses an existing database of geotagged historical markers to invite users to participate in “citizen history.” This panel describes the project’s design and pilot tests, and proposes that digital media, as potential tools which enable information literacy, can help facilitate right-minded information production.
