According to historyharvest.net, History Harvest is: “a collaborative, community based digital project and learning initiative that aims to democratize history. … Students digitally captured each artifact and shared them in a web-based archive providing publicly available material for historical study, k-12 instruction, and life-long learning” (http://historyharvest.net/). Scott French, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Public History Center at UCF, has prepared this helpful History Harvest bibliography below to introduce newcomers to the methodology.
