Process

The Tutankhamun Centenary Website was created by four Library and Information Science students from the University of Washington for their final Capstone project in collaboration with Dr Sarah Ketchley of the UW Near Eastern Languages & Civilizations department (see About for more information). As the website came together, we made decisions about how the material we were working with would be collected, managed, transcribed, coded, and edited. Those decisions are recorded here.

Additionally, we were able to collaborate with other scholars and professionals to understand the full process of how the materials we used came into being. This section of the website includes our records and governance documents. We were also lucky enough to do an interview with Seth Cayley from Gale (the digitizer and host of the Times Digital Archive) in which he explains how the Times articles became available in this format.
