The Trinity College Digital Repository has grown to become a rich and vast archive of materials that tell the history of the college. This spring, the Library is launching a new way to feature these materials in the form of online exhibits. Using the Omeka platform, we have built an inaugural digital exhibit on Trinity College in 1914, titled “100 Years Ago at Trinity.”
Items in the exhibit are taken from the Trinity Tripod, and the Trinity Ivy, and include articles, photographs, advertisements, and other pieces that when grouped together paint a picture of life in the academy in 1914. The exhibit is organized around themes such as student life, the curriculum, the physical plant, and athletics. We hope this new presentation of digital objects will help uncover and bring life to Trinity archive materials.
