In the past five years the Society of Architectural Historians has launched three new online resources designed both to provide information about the built world to vast numbers of people but also to provide historians with new models for publishing their work.
These projects include SAHARA, a shared online image archive; SAH Archipedia, an online edition of the Buildings of the United States project; and a multimedia edition of JSAH which can illustrate articles with video, panoramic photos, and 3D models superimposed over Google Earth maps.
On January 29, SAH Executive Director Pauline Saliga, who raised funding for and managed development of these online resources, will demonstrate their capabilities, talk about their impact on the field of architectural history and share lessons learned about managing collaborative digital projects. Please bring your questions and learn how you can contribute to building this resource.
