Virgin Islands History: Learning about Our Ancestors, Part 2

Virgin Islands History: Learning about Our Ancestors, Part 2

Note: This show was postponed last Saturday due to a technical glitch in the system beyond our control.

When one wants to learn more about one’s ancestors, one turns to sources of information. When it comes to learning more about our Virgin Islands ancestors, an extensive and readily available source is as close as the Internet via our University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) Libraries, more specifically, their 2000 Digitalization Award Project.

The UVI Libraries, in partnership with the VI Division of Libraries, Archives, & Museums (DLAM), were awarded a National Leadership grant for digitization from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) in 2000. The Project sought to enhance access to sources of information on VI's history and culture for scholars, students, historians, and researchers in the territory and abroad. The award was given for the purpose of digitizing USVI's materials in areas of biography, education, history, and culture for access on the Internet. Materia
