Students from the class will present their digital exhibits in the J.A. Brown Room in the Carmichael library tomorrow, April 15 from 6-7 PM. The presentation will also include a roundtable discussion on the process of digitizing historical objects and creating digital history exhibits with Omeka. Some of the questions we'll consider include:
- What is the value of doing Digital History as opposed to doing traditional forms of historical research?
- What kind of research did you do to create items on the Omeka archive? How did it compare to the historical research you've done?
- What are some difficulties you had with completing the Omeka project? What do you wish we could've done differently?
- What other or future uses do you see a tool like Omeka serving? Can you think of any examples on campus?
