Digital History Exhibit Launch

My first attempt at creating digital history “Baker University Track and Field: History & Tradition” is now live. I’ve spent the last several weeks designing and editing content as I digitized my undergraduate thesis in history. Accompanying the exhibit site is a blog where I’ll discuss what I changed from the original undergraduate thesis text, how and why I created pages, choices and debates I had about organization, citations, and links. I also hope to offer my arguments for the collaboration of archives and libraries to create university history and digital history, how projects like this can be utilized in undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as some of the difference I notice in doing digital history versus traditional history. Stay tuned and enjoy the site.
