Geneva College Digital History

Greg Jones and his digital history course at Geneva College in Beaver Falls, PA has put together a nice digital archive related to the history of the college.  This course and website serves as a nice model for introducing the digital humanities in a small college setting.

Here is  description of the project:

The Geneva College Digital Archive is part of a semester-long course at Geneva College in Beaver Falls, PA.  The staff of the project includes seven undergraduate students and one facilitating instructor.  Utilizing local primary sources, the group organized an archive of the 1920s that serves as a functioning research archive for higher education, college sports, western Pennsylvania history, and the 1920s in the broadest sense.

The course design is a part of an emerging applied history pedagogy intended to give students hands-on experience in the field of history, while also providing a service to the local Geneva community.
