The North Florida Editorial Workshop (nfew.org) engages students at the University of North Florida in the digital edition of archival materials related to local history. The project involves collaboration with various repositories, including the PK Yonge Library of Florida History at the University of Florida. This session will present an overview of the project, highlight the efforts of three students whose work has been supported by the PK Yonge Library, and examine the inter-institutional model that has made their endeavors possible.

Dr. Clayton McCarl, project leader, will review NFEW’s objectives, infrastructure and workflow. Georgina Wilson will share her bilingual project focused on Fort St. Nicholas, a Spanish defensive post located in present-day Jacksonville during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Carol Hemmingway will explain her work on a letter (c.1900) in which Ellen Call Long counters criticisms leveled against her father for his actions during the Battle of Withlachoochee and the Second Seminole War. Sarah Dumitrascu will discuss her prototype edition, built around a selection from a corrected typescript (c.1939) of Majorie Kinnan Rawlings’ novel The Yearling, which will allow users to study the author’s process by viewing the text in its various layers of revision. Dr. Jim Cusick, curator of the PK Yonge Library, will reflect on the value of the students’ work, in particular with respect to enhancing the discoverability and usability of the materials. Erik Moore, head of University Archives and co-director of the University Digital Conservancy at the University of Minnesota, will chair the session.
