Blog readers with an interest in Rhode Island cultural institutions will want to follow the progress of a project getting started under the aegis of the RI Historical Society. The RHODI Project aims to produce a directory of cultural institutions like libraries and museums in the state. From the press release:
History and heritage are among Rhode Island’s most valuable assets, and there is an urgent need for better public access and inter-organizational coordination . Through technology, it can easily and affordably be made relevant and valuable. RHODI will give hundreds of small local organizations access to audiences ranging from tourists to scholars, as well as to the synergies and benefits of a dynamic virtual network. Cultural heritage is an essential part of any vibrant local community, providing a strong rallying point and a means to instill civic pride.
