Amy's focus is to explore the work history of the Adirondack North Country, "community by community, based on the photos and stories we collect and shape into an online, public archive. The archive will trace our work history through the earliest photos from the 19th century up to present time, and into the future. We are building a searchable history that residents and visitors, educators and historians will all find interesting and useful."
Stories related to the photographic collection are shared on air and online through NCPR.
Melissane Schrems, St. Lawrence University Associate Professor of History is a Special Advisor to the project and Eric Williams-Bergen, Director of Research & Digital Scholarship is a member of the Core team and serves as the Archives Advisor.
