Digital Decades Online Project
Hansel Cook, Saint Mary's University, Canada

Demonstration: Demonstrations - Session 1

The Digital Decades on-line exhibition is a series of Web sites developed by the Saint Mary's University Archives. Development began as part of the institution's 200th Anniversary, both as an attempt to present historical information on the Web and as a way of reconnecting with Alumni and others associated with the institution. This paper discusses some of the background of Saint Mary's University, the set of circumstances that highlighted the need for more on-line historical information, an examination of some of the theory of on-line exhibits and use of the Web to reconnect with alumni, and finally the development and launch of the Digital Decades site. It concludes with a discussion of the success of the site and future plans for development.
