Here is a run-down of some things in the digital history world this week:
- The DHL is planning a training on Omeka, a great tool for creating digital exhibits and presenting research. We are looking to get a sense of numbers so If interested, please email Emma, Gabe, and Craig.
- The AHA has come up with a list of digital history resources, projects, and primary sources
- While the DHL will continue to run tutorials throughout the semester, UNC libraries also has a running list of tutorials that you can register for. All are being held on Zoom at the moment and you can find a list of upcoming events here.
- Crowdsourced digital history projects are a great class resource and can also be a fun way to pass the time. The OAH has a list of some interesting examples, some of which you can still contribute to. Our own Dr. Newhall and Dr. Moss have written a great blog post on the applicability of crowdsourced projects for classroom use.
As always, if you are interested in doing an episode of the podcast, writing for our blog, joining our working group, or want a consultation, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
Have a good week,
The DHL Team
Emma, Gabe, and Craig
