As we finalize our new digital history project centered on the Underground Railroad, we're looking for volunteers who can give us 15 minutes here at HSP on Wednesday Feb. 19 between 5 - 8 pm.
If you're in the Philadelphia area and can help us out, please email project manager Dana Dorman at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
We're looking for input on the project's prototype web site from educators, genealogists, scholars, representatives of other history and heritage organizations, and others. That means you!
We'll be asking volunteers to look at the draft web site and answer a few simple questions. Snacks will be provided, and we'll reward you with a small thank-you gift (options currently include a reprint of the 1783 Wallis map of the U.S., a couple different books, and HSP notecards).
We're scheduling volunteers into specific time slots, both to ensure that we have enough computers available and to make sure you don't have to wait long. We've already filled a number of available slots, but we'd like to find 10 more volunteers to help provide a mix of voices in this user testing.
If you can help, let us know which of the time slots listed below would work best for you. Please also indicate whether you'd identify yourself as the following (feel free to choose more than one): 1) college professor/instructor; 2) secondary school teacher; 3) genealogist; or 4) representative of history/heritage organization.
Available volunteer time slots for Wednesday Feb. 19, 2014:
Thanks in advance for your help!
