Time goes by really quickly, huh? I feel like I’ve just started on this project, but it’s already halfway through the semester.
Over the break I looked through more sources, including gathering information on the evacuation route of wounded into and out of Fredericksburg for the mapmakers. I uploaded some primary source letters written by women relief workers onto our website. I’ve also been getting together some dates to go into the timeline, as well as a few women relief workers who will be profiled on the site. Not you, Clara Barton! Everyone knows about you.
Uh oh, she’s got Mr. T on her side! Okay, ma’am, maybe just a little bit on you. If it was Chuck Norris, we’d have to dedicate the whole site to her.
Oh, good news! I solved the Fatal Error of Doom on Omeka, at least for the items. Patrick mentioned that there was an issue with Image Annotation being recognized without actually being turned on or something of that nature. I turned on Image Annotation and voila! Rejoice, kittens of the world!
Look, they’re so happy! Unfortunately, you aren’t all safe. The sections within the exhibits are still giving fatal errors. Patrick thinks that has to do with the lack of pages. And we can’t add pages until we know for certain how we want to divide information into pages. I think it’ll make more sense once we actually have our research written out.
P.S. No one will probably see this until Thursday morning when they’re desperately trying to post and make comments before class, but go see the Great Lives lecture tonight! Julia Child was one of the most awesome of super awesome people!
