The History Harvest is a collaborative, community based digital history and learning initiative that aims to democratize and open history. The project utilizes digital technologies to share the experiences and artifacts of people and local historical institutions. At each “harvest” community members are invited to share their letters, photographs, objects, and stories. Each artifact is digitally captured for general educational use and study. This book, aimed at university professors, public historians, k-12 teachers, and community groups, provides a guide that will lead you through the History Harvest process from beginning to end.
