IMES offered its expertise to digitize oral histories in legacy formats and process metadata in military-specific terms to support a new traveling exhibition.
The Military Women’s Memorial (MWM) is located at the ceremonial entrance to Arlington National Cemetery and is the only historical repository documenting all military women’s service. IMES was requested to take all MWM’s items and extract metadata from the physical elements, as well as capture images of their content.
IMES digitized oral histories in legacy formats and processed their metadata.
Our work helped migrate and organize data which became part of the MWM’s mobile exhibition called, “The Color of Freedom: Honoring the Diversity of America’s Servicewomen,” as part of their AppreSHEation Tour. The content calls attention to the sacrifices and contributions of all women, and women of color in particular, that have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
