Choosing the Right Platform for Your Digital Archive
March 17 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
This workshop is designed for students, faculty, and staff at all levels interested in creating a digital archive as part of their research projects or for use in the classroom. A brief discussion on some of the theoretical underpinnings of digital archival work will be followed by an overview of a range of tools and platforms (including WordPress, Omeka, Tropy, Drupal, Jekyll, and Collective Access). Together, we will go over a number of questions and examples that will help you choose a platform that best fits your needs and those of your projects.
