More Than A List of Crew

More Than A List of Crew

A multi-media primary source website embodying and explaining the work papers of nineteenth century seafarers on British and British Empire trading vessels. Their scope is world-wide and the information detailed enough to sustain many kinds of social, economic, and famiily history and "story-telling" projects. Historical research methods are explained and self-reflective practice encouraged through several types of interactive technology. The original documents are held at Memorial University of Newfoundland which can supply digital versions that can be matched with the online documents.

See especially the "buttoned" document at http://www.mun.ca/mha/mlc/toolkit/agreements/foreign-going/index.php.

This prototype for document exegisis and navigation is being used in a variety of undergraduate classrooms at Memorial and is involved in our research into how students use online documents.
