SSHMP's Funded Project:
South Side Home Movie Project: Developing Interactive Tools for Community Cataloging

The South Side Home Movie Project proposes to expand the community engagement opportunities available on our new website through the development of custom software that invites visitors to participate in the knowledge-building process by contributing to the public data on each film. We will convene a multi-disciplinary group of partners to guide the design of this new feature, and to thoroughly test and experiment with it before public launch. The specialized software will enable home movie donors and other site visitors to add comments, locations, names and annotations to individual films, generating the richly detailed context that grounds the films in lived experience, and makes SSHMP an increasingly important, useful, and complex resource.
