Community Idea Exchange
13 May 2016
At the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani, we have been building a digital historical archive of manuscripts, letters, diaries, photographs, and other materials in local private collections. I will discuss two aspects of this project. First, how we have integrated the digital collection into an undergraduate course teaching history research methods, allowing students to conduct original research and publish it online. Second, I will share ideas on best practices for collaboration between a small institution with limited resources, and a large American research university.
