In a post on The National Archives Narations blog, Meredith Doviak (The National Archives) announced the National Archives’ contributions to Google Arts & Culture’s American Democracy Collection. The collection of interactive exhibits about presidential elections in the United States involved collaborations with the WNET Thirteen, The Thomas Jefferson Foundation, the Archive of American Television, and the National Voting Rights Museum, among others.
Doviak notes that the project “brings together over 70 exhibits and 2500+ artifacts from 44 institutions dedicated to the preservation of U.S. political history and the practice of American democracy.”
Libraries, Museums, and Archives planning special programming for the election season may want to consider sharing the various media available in this collection with patrons.
