This is the documentation for "Digitizing the S. D. Cabaniss Papers," an NHPRC-funded grant project which will run from January 1, 2010 through February, 2011.


Prior to the beginning of this digitization project, there had only been 13 patron requests for use of (or information from) the S. D. Cabaniss collection over the past 5 years:

  • 2005 1 patron
  • 2006 1 patron
  • 2007 1 patron
  • 2008 6 patrons
  • 2009 4 patrons

We ascribe the jump in accesses in 2008 to the NHPRC-funded processing of this important collection, under the "Bringing Alabama's African American History to Light" (NARA06GRANT-048) effort. However, processing must be followed by digitization to provide the widest possible access to content.

The current grant "Digitizing the S.D. Cabaniss Papers", part of the "Digitizing Historical Records" effort by NHPRC, is funded for 14 months. The intent is to provide online access to the content in a low-cost, scalable model which simulates online the experience of the patron in the reading room. That is, the finding aid provides the descriptive information about the content, and from the finding aid, content in each series is linked in the order found in each file and box.
