Digital Durham Archive and Project

The Digital Durham Archive was begun a decade ago by Trudi Abel and a team of students working with the Duke Libraries. The content in Digital Durham has been used in many other projects and classes over the years. We are partnering with Trinity Technology Services to update the infrastructure around Digital Durham and to make the content more accessible as a resource to other projects. We also hope to link derivative projects to the archive going forward.

More broadly, this project represents an ongoing collaboration with Duke Libraries and Durham community members to create projects that explore Durham's history and culture through the use of new technologies. Some of the Undergraduate Capstone projects have focused on the Durham community, while others occur outside of individual classes.
