Thanks to generous donors to Tri Delta’s Foundation, we’ve begun to digitize hundreds of thousands of pieces from our Museum and Archives. Listen to hear more about this exciting project!
Today’s episode, we are joined by Dr. Kristen Gwinn-Becker, Founder and CEO of HistoryIT. Our partnership with HistoryIT allows us to save our history and digitize it for preservation and accessibility. With physical forms of history in danger of deterioration, digitizing our treasured past allows for easy access from any computer or mobile device. Upon completion of this project, Tri Delta will have more than two million pieces readily available at tridelta.historyit.com! Members will have access to printed materials and audio/visual from our founding up to present day. This digitization allows for us to understand our shared history and tell our story through our archives.
