UNC History Community,
Here’s your weekly update on what’s new in the digital history world:
- The Genoa Indian School Digital Reconciliation Project, “a collaboration between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; the Genoa U.S. Indian School Foundation; Community Advisors from the Omaha, Pawnee, Ponca, Santee Sioux, and Winnebago tribes of Nebraska; and descendants of those who attended Genoa,” aims to preserve a piece of Native American history through digitizing government records on the former Genoa U.S. Indian Industrial School and collecting oral histories with students from the school.
- The Southeast Asia Digital Library is a project under the Committee on Research Materials on Southeast Asia at Northern Illinois University with a focus on preserving the history of Vietnam.
- Digital History is not a skillset restricted to academia. The city of Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada recently published an article about how their government uses digital tools in their archives and challenges they face in preservation.
Make sure to contact the Digital History Lab if there are any skills you want to learn, need support with your own digital history projects, or are interested in our blog and/or podcast!
Thanks for reading,
