Part of how Montpelier does engaged scholarship is by taking into consideration the many thoughts and opinions of the many stakeholders for any given project. For this project, stakeholders include descendants, educators, genealogists, volunteers, metal detector hobbyists, independent researchers, scholars, museum professionals, collectors, history buffs, visitors, students, and anyone who is interested in learning more about Montpelier’s collections. While we have designed our workshop to include representatives of these stakeholder groups, we also want to have a broader idea as to what these different groups would want in an online digital collections database.
