Make history alive : a progress report of the Hussey Paper collection projects

Promoting research data service is almost a "Holly Grail" at the University of Michigan Library, while few digital research happens in Michigan Japanese Studies community. I have developed collaborative projects with students to increase the awareness for digital humanities and a hidden collection, Alfred Rodman Hussey Papers which consists of the Japanese Constitution drafts and other documents related to promote the new constitution and the occupation policies of Japan.

I would like to share briefly about this resource and the progress report of the efforts with the students for its preservation and the access to the resource, as an example of the role of librarians to encourage digital scholarship among students.
