CAPE is a charter school located in Camarillo, California. We started this process with most of the class listening in on our first teleconference. The students that were interested talked with our teacher, Mrs. Kavon, and joined the group. We met once a week and decided on what topics we wanted to focus on. Our class is very interested on learning what is going on in our world, so we finally agreed on having a collection for Current Events, Books, and A day in the life of a Camarillo Teenager. We have all enjoyed this opportunity to archive our current lives for future generations of teenagers like us.

James Moran Middle School is located in Wallingford, CT half-way between New York and Boston. The Library of Congress Archive group was made up of 25 volunteers who met after school to select websites for inclusion into the Archive. After selecting almost 100 websites, we found patterns that were used to create our three collections: Entertainment, Shopping, and Social Networking. It was incredibly exciting to be able to contribute to the collection and have the opportunity to be involved in helping to write the history of our era. Hopefully when historians are able to reflect on our entries 1000’s of years from now they will see how we had a strong need to connect, create, and of course, go shopping online!

Mount Dora High School, home of the “Hurricanes,” is located in the city of Mount Dora, Florida, approximately 30 miles northwest of Orlando, Florida. Ms. Straughan’s AP History class and Mr. Buell’s Economics classes are participating in this year’s Web Archiving Project. This is our first year archiving, and we are excited to be selecting and tagging web sites. In preparation for web archiving, we created an on-line file sharing site in “Moodle” to view and discuss the proposed web sites and to avoid duplication.

Paul VI Catholic High School is located just outside of Washington D.C in Fairfax, Virginia. We’ve created the Webcrawlers Club to be part of this program. The club is student-run, with the school librarian serving as the advisor. Chosen sites are an eclectic mix recommended by Paul VI’s students. We have a lead student for each of our three collections, each of whom is in charge of the site descriptions for their collection. Our club members are proud to be the connection between the Paul VI community and the students of the future.

The students enjoy this great program that allows them to find what is interesting and important to them.

Rosman High School is a small school located in rural western Transylvania County in the southwestern mountains of North Carolina. We felt it was important to show the world some of our cultural heritage within the Internet. Our Transylvania County collection is a reflection of what our county has to offer. For our second topic, we discussed what most teenagers do with their time on the Internet. Not surprisingly, the answer was “Waste Time!” So, our second collection became our waste of time.
