The LISA Portal Features the Digitization Project on the History of Slavery in Venezuela
The LISA portal of the Gerda Henkel Stiftung just published a note summarizing all the work we did over the las months for the project about the history of slavery in Venezuela! It provides an overview of the emergency situation that led to action and the rescue of the Civil-Slaves Section. The note also includes some details about the contents you might find in this collection and the infrastructural improvements, training activities and project objectives met during the implementation of the initiative. I am very proud for the results of this project and grateful for the support of our partners, the National Academy of History and the Gerda Henkel Stiftung. The goal is to keep growing to rescue and digitize more at-risk historical archives and contribute to the democratization of knowledge through open access technologies.
