About DigitalArc

Digital Archiving & Storytelling for Historically Underrepresented-Communities

Our goal is to support the site-specific preservation needs of historically-underrepresented communities and their socio-cultural identity and narratives through digital archiving and digital storytelling. More than platforms and processes, we take a holistic approach to community-archiving with a focus on people. Visit the FAQ for more information.

Community & Campus Partners

This list is slowly growing as we develop relationship with community and campus partners.

How it started

The IDAH@IU team often gets requests to support archiving projects. This repository provides a starting point, a template for using simple Github Pages, developed in partnership with Jazma Sutton and through community-storytelling partnerships with ImaginX en Movimiento (IXeM) co-founded by Marisa Hicks-Alcaraz; La Casa, the Center for Research on Race, Ethnicity and Society, and the Asian Culture Center at Indiana University Bloomington; and the Remembering Freedom descendant community in Greenville and Longtown, Ohio, which hosts the community-archive project that inspired the initial development of this theme’s predecessor, the Community-Archive template.
