Curating a Digital Archive Using Muse, Audition, and Acrobat (by Rachel Isom)

Project Published 8/14/17 Last updated on 8/14/17

Students will employ Adobe Acrobat, Audition, and Muse in this module to help create and curate a digital edition based on rare materials pertaining to their university’s history. They will propose a project that investigates journalistic coverage of a campus event or traces similar events or ephemera contributions to better understand campus history. Students will annotate part of these materials based on supplementary research, and they’ll present their findings in written and oral forms. Students will be immersed in history and digital humanities practices, honing their abilities to research, synthesize, and present information. While this unit is based on particular materials found in UNC’s Wilson Library, it can be adapted to suit any campus’s materials or rare book collections.
