Farmer’s Award Scavenger Hunt!

A major part of the project that I am in charge of, is conducting an inventory and digitizing the various James Farmer awards found across campus. In a video one my group members created a few weeks ago, they described this process as a “campus-wide scavenger hunt,” which has definitely been an accurate statement. The three places that I have decided to focus my part of the project on our Special Collections, The James Farmer Multicultural Center, and the Rappahanic/James Farmer Scholars office. In each of these places, there are numerous artifacts and awards. Due to the fact that there are so many different things around campus, the next thing that my group needs to do is to define what we believe to be an award. This is so we do not find ourselves wasting time digitizing things that do not fit into our online collection. In my next post, I hope to elaborate more on what the definition of a James Farmer award is. For the time being, what do you think we should include in our definition of awards? Would it be fitting to include certificates or plaques? Would it be more appropriate to include both? If you have any opinions on the matter, feel free to comment down below!
