All History is Local: Find, Preserve, and Digitize Collections that Tell the Story (Online)

Presented By: LYRASIS



Description: Community History can refer to the story of a town, a neighborhood, area, or group of people. This history is often built on research found outside of academic institutions. When creating the story of a community materials can lead to the discovery of the everyday lives of those who live(d) within an identified group or location – these stories don’t just rely on “the official record.”


Every community has its own history and its unique way of sharing the tale. In this class we will define what makes for relevant “community” history. We will also explore some of the tools available for individuals and agencies to organize projects, pursue research, and present community background and details. We will also examine examples of successful projects that have been created to tell these unique American stories.
