WHCA Pool Reports Project

The iSchool DCIC is conducting a student educational and research project focused on enhanced access to the White House Correspondents’ Association pool reports through automated archival processing. Our
goal is to not only preserve these documents but create a searchable database to ensure pool reports can be used for future research.

This project is a partnership between the Digital Curation Innovation Center, University of Maryland’s School of Journalism, University of Maryland’s Libraries.
