Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Digital History provides for the first time a plainspoken and thorough introduction to the web for historians--teachers and students, archivists and museum curators, professors as well as amateur enthusiasts--who wish to produce online historical work, or to build upon and improve the projects they have already started in this important new medium. The book takes the reader step by step through planning a project, understanding the technologies involved and how to choose the appropriate ones, designing a site that is both easy to use and scholarly, digitizing materials in a way that makes them web-friendly while preserving their historical integrity, and reaching and responding to an intended audience effectively. It also explores the repercussions of copyright law and fair use for scholars in a digital age and examines more cutting-edge web techniques involving interactivity, such as sites that use the medium to solicit and collect historical artifacts. Finally, the book provides basic guidance for ensuring that the digital history the reader creates will not disappear in a few years. Throughout, Digital History maintains a realistic sense of the advantages and disadvantages of putting historical documents, interpretations, and discussions online. The authors write in a tone that makes Digital History accessible to those with little knowledge of computers, while including a host of details that more technically savvy readers will find helpful. And although the book focuses particularly on historians, those working in related fields in the humanities and social sciences will also find this to be a useful introduction.

Book News Annotation:

Cohen and Rosenzweig take their experiences with a project at George Mason U.—titled Echo: Exploring and Collecting History Online; Science, Technology, and Industry—and build them into an introduction to the Web for historians who want to produce or improve an online exhibit. They walk readers (teachers, students, activists, curators, amateur enthusiasts) through the process of planning a project, understanding the technologies involved, and responding to an intended audience effectively. Discussion includes coverage of copyright law and fair use for scholars, and of evolving Web techniques that enable interactivity.

Synopsis:

"This is an important book that fills an important niche: a careful and comprehensive report to the field on the development and possibilities of online history."-Stephen Brier, Associate Provost and Dean for Interdisciplinary Studies, Graduate Center, CUNY
