Collective memory

Description

All libraries struggle with how to make their information available to a wider audience, outside of the local area. A couple years ago, the John F. Kennedy Library embarked on making their records, documents, photos, and videos available on the Internet. By creating this digital archive, people no longer have to go to Boston to experience the legacy of Kennedy’s effect on our country. Yet, when doing something new, collaboration is pivotal even if difficult at times. Another challenge is choosing the technology and being conscience of keeping the archives safe. Despite these challenges, being able to experience this archive online will allow people to emotionally connect with the daily lives of the Kennedys. The hope is that younger generations can feel the effect that Kennedy had on his generation. This digital archive seeks to personalize the President for the digital generation.
