Collections Up Close: The Digital Collection as a Tool for Close Examination

Rating
0.0 stars

This program explores how educators, librarians, curators, artists, writers, and students can harness the power of digital archives and storytelling at a time when many of us are missing the hands-on experience of using library collections. Attendees learn about free online storytelling platforms that can be repurposed for immersive narratives such as virtual collection show-and-tells, digital exhibits, and close reading tools. Presenters build a case study example using an object from The Huntington’s collections—a Japanese map illustrating topics of interest to the Japanese visitor or immigrant to Hawaiʻi. This event is part of an ongoing webinar series presented by the Library's Reader Services Department, the Multi-Storied Library.
