Kate Holterhoff, postdoctoral fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Literature, Media, and Communication, wrote the Chronicle, September 29, article, “Using Digital Archives to Teach Data Set Creation and Visualization Design.” The School of Literature, Media, and Communication, is part of the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.

Excerpt:

Useful as digital archives have become for academics and historians, integrating these projects into college classrooms still poses significant challenges.

Advanced undergraduate and graduate students alone tend to benefit from the growing number of projects archiving primary documents online. But digital archives providing access to rare images, correspondence, reviews, and manuscripts have the capacity to benefit a spectrum of undergraduates, including those majoring in STEM fields.
