Dictionary of African Christian Biography 2.0

  • Starts: 12:00 pm on Tuesday, September 19, 2017
The Dictionary of African Christian Biography is an online, open source publication committed to documenting, collecting, preserving, and making freely accessible biographical accounts and church histories of African Christianity. The project showcases the stories of the African pioneers chiefly responsible for the birth and explosive growth of Christianity across the continent. This summer, the DACB website underwent a complete redesign using a flat-file CMS system conceived by leading software development platform Github. The new site has a lightweight digital footprint, loads fast, and can be distributed on USB drive in areas without Internet access. In addition, multiple indexes and a powerful standalone search engine (that works offline) make it easy to do in-depth research on the site. To showcase the new website and to celebrate the work of those involved, you are invited to a special event. On Tuesday, September 19th the DACB will host a small lunch in the School of Theology, room 325. The festivities will begin at noon and end at 1 pm. Join us for a brief demonstration of the new site, to experience the new look and capacities of the DACB.

STH 325
