DC/SLA History: 75th Jubilee Digital Photo Exhibit Now Online

DC/SLA History: 75th Jubilee Digital Photo Exhibit Now Online

By Rick Kowalski

Earlier in the year, the DC/SLA Archives Committee searched for an online archiving tool for sharing some of the photos throughout the chapter’s 75 years. After trying a few options, they chose Omeka as the tool for the task.

The photo archive is now live at http://dcslajubilee.omeka.net. There are a few photos from as early as 1950s, and naturally there are more from recent years. We don’t have any from the 90’s at the moment. Were we all too busy surfing the information superhighway??

This is a work in progress, so expect to see more photos in the near future!

Do you have photos from DC/SLA history that you would like to share? We know there must be more pictures out there, and we suspect some of you know more about the ones that are already posted. Please let us know by contacting dcsla.archives@gmail.com.
