Subject

Description

Daniel Cohen, professor of history at George Mason University and director of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media and the late Roy Rosenzweig, professor of history and innovator in digital scholarship at George Mason University co-authored the book, Digital History: A Guide to Gathering, Preserving and Presenting the Past on the Web. The book is divided into chapters beginning with the evolution of digital historical scholarship and concluding with guidelines for planning and preserving an historical digital archive. Historical research has been both enhanced by and reshaped by online resources, and the authors believe the interfaces to these resources have also shaped genres. Additionally, the authors emphasize the importance of establishing a partnership among scholars, librarians, and archivists for the purpose of creating new knowledge.
