History Online

History Online is a new series of seminars to explore freely accessible digital collections with archivists internationally. In the COVID and post-pandemic world, more primary-document research will be conducted via remote devices using new techniques. While upholding the rigors of responsible scholarship, what are the possibilities now available to scholars and students? With massive numbers of free-access collections globally going digital, how do we remain disciplined and targeted when searching, yet also let the information lead us to new findings? As with old-fashioned approaches, the archivists guide us to new understandings.


All meetings are conducted via Zoom. If you have a question or would like to attend a session, please email history.online2021@gmail.com.
