About the Project

I spent the entire summer of 2015 collaborating with all of the departments at the Haverford College Libraries to build the Quakers & Mental Health website from the ground-up. Using Django as a framework, I created a substantial administration back-end which will allow students and librarians to continue to add to the research and information they discover on Friends Asylum. I also used Foundation 5 to craft the front-end of the website.

The goal of this site is to create a digital way for people to learn more about the early years of Friends Asylum and Quakers and mental health, and spur further research projects--both done in Haverford Special Collections and online by the public.

Some interesting pages to see are the Patient Bar Graph, Patient Table, and the Glossary of Terms page.
