Working closely with students majoring in Digital Media, Arts, and Technology, the Behrend History Project works to offer undergraduate research opportunities to students. Behrend's strong liberal arts tradition has long allowed students to work collaboratively with faculty outside of the classroom. The Behrend history project is encoded in XML/TEI to describe the artifacts in the archive. The site is developed with eXist-db and TEI-Publisher. In the coming years, the faculty and students of Penn State Behrend will work to produce a placeography of locations, a personography of students and community memebers associated with the college, and an orgography of organizations.
