The Public History 497 Digital Archive at the University of Windsor brings together thematically organized digitized archival materials from the Leddy Library that capture part of the unique history of Windsor & Essex County. Students in the class selected materials on various topics, worked to digitize those materials and build an online exhibit using the Omeka digital exhibits software, and also contributed their unique historical scholarship to bring these items to life.
