Added Value

The first page of the web site will be an introduction to the site and to the project. It will welcome the viewer and will provide details about the project, the project supporters, where and how the documents were chosen, including copyright information, the contact for the project should somebody want to intern and/or donate to it and lastly a search option. This page will also introduce the viewer to the Project Manager, Project Archivist and Public Historian. Additionally the part-time employees will be introduced.

Since the collection is based on a very specific time period it is important that the site contextualizes the story with biographical information. Detailed accounts of Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman's work prior to their deportation trial and work against conscription will be documented.

There are many books and articles written about Alexander Berkman and Emma Goldman. A detailed bibliography will be formulated and posted for further reading.

While much of the content in the Berkman-Goldman Archive will be specific to a certain time period, it is important to contextualize their work and lives within a broader spectrum.

Teachers Guide
A guide directing students how to discuss the complex themes surrounding anarchy, WWI and conscription will be available on the web site. As the subject matter of the site will most likely be geared towards a high school level, the subject matter should be paired down to provide for a clear understanding of the key people, places and themes.
