Happy Wednesday! We hope everyone is having a great week so far. Here is the latest news in the digital history world.

1. Blue, Gold, and Black Digital Archive: Three groups at the University of Pittsburgh — the University of Pittsburgh Library System, the Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, the Black Action Society — have created a website documenting the history of UPitt’s black students. The digital archive intends to “uplift the memories and histories of Black students, faculty and staff at Pitt by sharing photographs and stories that detail their experiences.” Read more about the project here.

2. Women’s History at Virginia Tech: Two employees at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Kira Dietz and Anna LoMascolo, created a digital interactive timeline to commemorate the history of women at the university. The archive aims to “share the history of the roles that women, including students, staff, faculty, and administrators, have played on campus even before women were first admitted as full-time students in 1921” through documents, images, oral histories, and publications. Read more and explore the timeline here.

3. Women’s History Museum Digital Collections: As Women’s History Month quickly approaches, expand your knowledge of women’s history through two resources curated by the National Women’s History Museum. Their online exhibits cover topics ranging from the civil rights movement to women in stem to fashion history. Or browse through digital biographies of some of America’s most important women.
