Create collection with you name.

Click on “Collections” and then “Add a collection.”

Title your collection your name (first and last)

Add whatever Dublin Core Standards you think appropriate. I’ve created a sample. Your collection will build as the semester progresses.

Click “Add Collection” to save your collection.

You may look at other’s collections, but do not attempt to edit or add to them. You only get credit for your own collection.

Add two new items from the web pages we read for this week to your new collect.

Your two items should relate to each other in a way that your find historically significant based on our readings. At the end of this assignment you are asked to write an analysis of your two items, so you may wish to review the writing assignment before selecting your items.
