The Charlemont Historical Society recently began digitizing its collection. In keeping with this year’s theme of textiles, the first items we have put online are quilts, coverlets, flags, and related materials.
We are using a tool called Omeka to share these materials online. Developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, Omeka makes it possible for small historical societies and museums like ours to make exhibits and collections available to everyone, anywhere.
