Going Digital: Presenting UT Campus History in the 21st Century
MetadataShow full item record
The Campus History site combines historical maps and materials from the UT Archives housed at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History. This digitized, geo-temporal website explores the development of the UT campus through archival materials, such as photographs and personal letters. Since 2015, the project has moved from a basic Omeka platform to a customized site that enhances the functionality of the map exhibit. Besides serving as an example of a creative application of archival research, this project also identifies and provides insight into the challenges of communicating history in the 21st century.
