Importance of Open Access and Resources

HADC seeks to provide a database that is open-sourced, language-sensitive, and amenable to users with limited internet or data bandwidth. We seek to maintain a digital platform that is open to the public and promotes the end user’s ability to contribute to scholarship and narratives on Haitian art. We are investigating existing and new online tools that are accessible, appealing to non-academic audiences, and compile helpful research tools for students and scholars. During the 2023-2024 year, we plan to begin beta testing, to amass information on how users utilize the database and to consider ways we can adapt our platform to enhance research.
