Getting Started on the Maine Memory Network Project

Two weeks ago, Ed and Chris and I went up to the Maine Historical Society in Portland to get our Maine Memory Network training for the new grant project. What an amazing group of people up there! We learned about what makes good history and how to tell stories online. We learned how to scan our images and how to catalog them properly. We also learned how to work with some very cool tools, including ExhibitBuilder which helps make online exhibits.

Chris and I did some brainstorming about how we wanted the online exhibit to look. We're currently planning one main exhibit page with two photo albums in the sidebar (The Virtual Trolley Tour of Maine and A Field Guide to Trolley Cars). Can't wait to get started!
