Introduction

My name is Debbie and I am obviously the non-traditional student in the class.   This is my first semester at UMBC and I am a history major.  I also volunteer at the Baltimore Museum of Industry and am a consultant for a small historical society in Anne Arundel County.   My goal is to get my Master’s Degree in Public History and return to full-time museum work.    My personal historical area of interest is fashion and fashion history.

I think digital history is the use of digital technology to gather and store information from as many resources as possible to provide better access so those resources and information can be researched, interpreted and shared (often via digital technology).
