Development of an open-source framework for accessing the UNC Library's collection of original Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps, indexed to a wide range of primary source material.

Main Street, Carolina is a web-based digital history resource that would allow local libraries, schools, museums, preservation and local history societies, and other community organizations across the state to preserve, document, interpret, and share the history of the places that have given each town its character and identity over the past century. This project builds on our nationally recognized digital humanities project, Going to the Show, which has developed cutting-edge techniques for representing local cultural and social history through the use of the North Carolina Collection's unparalleled archive of local maps, photographs, and historic newspapers. Main Street, Carolina will share the benefits of this historical research and technological expertise with local organizations throughout the state by providing them with a flexible, user-friendly digital platform on which they can add a wide variety of "local" data.
