Buchanan Library Fellows Project

Buchanan Library Fellows Project, Spring 2020

Vanderbilt Historical Tree Tour

The Vanderbilt Arboretum has a long history that has been documented on its website and blog.
For some time, there have been plans to create a self-guiding tour focused on historical trees present on Vanderbilt's campus. This project will create a portable device-based tree tour that will allow users to locate historical trees and learn about the history of the trees and the university through links to additional information on the Arboretum website. The project will involve photography, metadata management, web design, and historical research in the Libraries' Special Collections and University Archives.
