The New Orleans Research Collaborative brings together individuals pursuing an historical and critical evaluation of New Orleans. With the creation of a non-profit, interdisciplinary online resource, we seek to facilitate and problematize understandings of the city’s rich history and culture, both before and after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

The New Orleans Research Collaborative (NOLARC) brings together resources on the history and culture of New Orleans. We use Zotero 2.0 (, a research extension of the Firefox web browser that allows users to gather, organize, and analyze sources in groups. You can check out some of the resources we’re gathering here and here.

We are using Zotero to create thematic bibliographies. NOLARC will also use Omeka (, an open-source web-publishing platform for the display of library and museum archives, as well as scholarly collections and exhibitions; this aspect was released in late 2010.
