Project Overview

In the summer of 2012, the Rhode Island Historical Society was granted funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to conduct a statewide survey of Rhode Island’s history and heritage sector. The intended outcomes of the project were an online directory of historical sites and collections available to the public, and a white paper outlining the resources and needs of the sector. I began my work with the Rhode Island History Online Directory Initiative (RHODI) Project in September 2012, when I joined the project at its onset as a Field Surveyor.
