1) The year of the graduating class. Some yearbooks were
published the year following the graduating class. In the example above,
for instance, the Class of 1894 is featured in the Prism published in 1895. In this example, field 1 is "1894"
2) The year of the Prism's publication.Some yearbooks were published
the year following the graduating class. In the example above,
for instance, the Class of 1894 is featured in the Prism published in 1895. In this example, field 2 is "1895".
3) The link that will bring visitors to the right section of the yearbook to
find this person. This link should always link to a .pdf file, not
the HTML page that gives an overview of everything in the yearbook.
4) The page number of the original publication, not the page number of the
PDF. Sometimes, the page number is not shown on the page,
but in most cases, you should be able to deduct the page number based on the pages around it. If you're unsure, email brian@earlyMaine.org
See the picture below as an example:
5) Senior's first name.
6) Senior's middle name or initial, if listed.
7) Senior's last name with any suffix, if listed.
8) The notes field is for any notes of interest, or items you think will help
someone locate this person. An example of a note worth including
would be "Not Pictured." for those Seniors who do not have a picture in the yearbook. If you have a question about whether a note should
be included or not, you can include it while you are entering the data and then send an email to brian@earlyMaine.org with your question.
If we decide it's something that should not be included, we can edit the database record at a later time.
Thank you for your efforts in helping the University of Maine's Fogler
Library and earlyMaine.org continue to improve this valuable information
online, and s always, if you have any questions about the project, please email brian@earlyMaine.org for clarification.
