The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM) provides access to online collections, exhibitions, teacher resources, and digital tools for scholars. The CHNM also develops applications for scholars to engage in digital history. Since 1994,the CNHNM has used digital media and computer technology to democratize history—to incorporate multiple voices, reach diverse audiences, and encourage popular participation in presenting and preserving the past.
CHNM sponsors more than two dozen digital history projects and offers free tools and resources for historians.These digital projects emerge from CHNM’s engagement with the practice of history in universities, schools, libraries, archives, museums, and communities. They are shaped by collaborations with practitioners and audiences, and are produced by teams of researchers, developers, designers and graduate students.
