The Digital Library on American Slavery is an expanding initiative by the UNCG Libraries to bring public records related to enslavement together in one place.  Visitors to the web site can search through data on over 200,000 individuals.  This presentation will give a walkthrough of the project, highlighting technology and design choices made during the Covid-19 work environment. DLAS will continue to increase its document collection and advance its research data solutions. The project is located at: https://dlas.uncg.edu
