A Measure of Care

Elizabeth Ferguson

A Measure of Care is an interactive look at representation and value of people in archives.



A Measure of Care invites you to look for remarkable people in the Library of Congress' collections who did not receive obituaries in The New York Times until the launch of their Overlooked feature in 2018. The project also offers tools for people to add more representation of these people into archives, and others who are overlooked, into the Library of Congress' homepage with a chrome extension and the ability to contribute to the dataset behind the project.
