This collection focuses on items that pertain to the history of Clintonville. I have digitized and provided metadata descriptive terms through the program CONTENTdm to preserve oral history transcripts, photos, newspapers and pamphlets of historical significance. The intention is to provide a glimpse into life in historic Clintonville and information for those who seek it.
This was a group project completed for a class through the UW-Extension, Leadership Waupaca County. Our group saw an issue dealing with keeping young people in Waupaca County, and attracting others to come and stay here. We felt that the school-to-work program could educate high school students on careers in manufacturing, and help them connect with a fulfilling career in the #1 industry in Wisconsin. Waupaca County has a wide variety of natural resources and splendor not found anywhere in Wisconsin, as well as some interesting places for people to gather. Unfortunately, these places cannot be easily found, especially by younger people who rely on the Internet and social media to get their information. Thus, we decided that creating a Facebook page that would work as a central hub of information would help current and future young professionals to become more aware of what is happening in Waupaca County, and to stay better connected within their communities.

This is a collection of Beatles collectibles and memorabilia. It was created for my Digital Libraries class at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the Fall of 2010, where I was required to select, digitize, provide metadata, and design an interface for a digital collection. The interface was designed with Dreamweaver, images edited with Photoshop and the collection was created using CONTENTdm. The intention was to promote this personal collection of memorabilia and preserve it in a digital format. This site was hosted at UW-Milwaukee, and after I graduated, I lost the server space to host the site. The link will lead you to a slideshow of how the site looked.
Unique Game Links
This page was created for E-Publishing and Web Design class at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the Fall of 2010. I created the page to highlight some of the higher quality free games that can be found on the internet. Games were organized by genre and whether the game is played in a web browser or downloaded onto your computer. The images were created and edited using Photoshop and the site was designed with Dreamweaver. Unfortunately, after I graduated from UWM, I lost the server space to host this site. It will live on as a Tumblr page I created to highlight free games and to bring up interesting thoughts, tidbits and reviews/previews.
