Project Description

We are looking for a student to help us go through online lists of microfilm catalogs, general information leaflets and more to reorganize publications by topics such as military history, genealogy, etc. so they can be turned into new web pages. We are also seeking an analytical eye to review current pages for ideas on SEO improvement and usability. The section we'll be improving is: www.archives.gov/publications.

Additional Information

The Web and Social Media Branch at the National Archives is located in the Digital Engagement Division in the Office of Innovation. In this office, we are involved in many different tasks, from managing the agency website (archives.gov) and maintaining the online catalog to managing digitization partnerships and working with the Wikipedia community. For this project, we'll be focusing one section of the website to help researchers with access to information.
