Sheila A. Brennan (Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media) has published a post on her blog, Lot 49, discussing “Building Histories of the National Mall: A Guide to Creating a Digital Public History Project“. The Guide details the creation of the Histories of the National Mall project and website. As Brennan explains:
For organizations in the early planning stages of a project, this guide offers an open source and replicable example for history and cultural heritage professionals wanting a cost-effective solution for developing and delivering mobile content. The guide offers lessons learned and challenges we faced throughout the project’s development, and we discuss how we measured success for this specific project.
The Guide is organized into seven sections, covering the project from its rationale and content development through outreach, making it a useful resource for those wishing to create similar digital, public-facing projects.
