#dietDH 03

Digital History A guide to Gathering, Preserving, an Presenting the Past on the Web by Daniel Cohen and Roy Rosenzweig is the final reading of #dietDH reading/ discussion group for the fall semester at the University of Delaware. Digital History offers practical goals and recommendations for "online" projects and collaborations. While the focus of Digital History are the genres of history based digital projects, the chapter topics relate to the main foundations for "online" projects and users of the site.
           Currently, I have an interest in the preserving or archiving chapter. Similar to Historians, I am concerned with the longevity aspect for my Internet-based project and have been reevaluating my methods for web construction and surviving future technical changes. 

Digital History is a book and the authors offer an online version of the text
