Event Description:

In fall 2013, junior-year students participating in a research seminar with the Department of History ventured into the realm of Digital Humanities. Working alongside faculty, as well as Falvey Memorial Library staff, students undertook historical research in local archives and online databases to design and construct a website based on an interactive map of Ardmore, Pennsylvania in the 1920s.

The event, sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, is free and open to the public.
