Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - The Tennessee State Library and Archives is planning to collect digital records of how World War I affected Tennesseans.

The library says archivists will travel throughout the state to digitally scan and photograph documents, maps, photographs, uniforms and other artifacts related to World War I.

The archivists won't take items from the owners but will provide tips on how to take care of them.

The first event is this week in Nashville. Items will be digitally recorded from 11:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday at the Library and Archives building at 403 Seventh Ave. North in downtown Nashville.

To reserve time with an archivist, email WorldWarI.tsla@tn.gov or call (615) 741-1883.

Similar events will be held in other parts of the state. Visit http://sos.tn.gov/tsla/OverHere_WWI for more information.
