One of the goals of the USM Digital Archives Research Group is to encourage faculty, staff, students, and community members to explore how digital and physical archives help us to reflect on our disciplines and communities. Thus, in addition to a series on digital archives, we are excited to announce the first annual Save Our Stories: Engaging with Digital Collections, a collaborative project designed to engage the public with the USM Special Collections.
The following are slides to my recent talk at The Digital Antiquarian conference, hosted by the American Antiquarian Society. It was an absolute pleasure participating with such an excellent gathering of librarians, archivists, book historians, digital humanists, and literary scholars. My deepest thanks to Thomas Augst and Molly Hardy for such a provocative two days.
