Blog Contributions to the DRAW (Data Rescue Archives and Weather ) Participatory Archives by students in the 641 Archival Description and Access course taught by Gordon Burr are highlighted in the May postings.

Please look at the wonderful narratives supplied on the weather on McGill Convocation days in the 19th and early 20th centuries with links to local Montreal events. The data rescued from the handwritten weather registers and entered in a database by the students create new archival records in the online archives and add to the data available to scientists researching climate change.
