OBJECTIVE(S):Identify all officers and enlisted that have been assigned to the USS William H. Bates (SSN 680) and incorporate them into the Master Sailing List.
PROCESS:
  • Contact the National Archives and Research Administration and determine the process and cost of obtaining records of all personnel assigned to the base
  • Raise necessary funding
  • Create site mechanism for funding support
  • Request documents by year
  • Recruit volunteers for document processing
  • Post documents to the website
  • Determine what data to capture and how
  • Modify site database to support data capture
  • Generate instructions for volunteers to process data
  • Input data
  • Develop user list to identify new personnel discovered.
  • Ensure data is linked to source
DEPENDENCIES:
  • Depends heavily on what NARA is capable of providing, how long that takes, and how much it costs.
  • Community Builder may not manage data in a way that we need, and admin may not have the skill necessary to overcome.
  • Cost may be excessive.
  • Total duration will depend on number of volunteers
OBSTACLES:
  • NARA reports that data more recent that 12/1981 is not indexed or catalogued, and currently considered unobtainable except at great expense. Jesse Padron reports that a solution is being sought, but none has yet been identified.(180308)
