Archives

This class was the first time I had ever been on an archive unless I got an article for one on a paper or something and didn’t know it. I think it is a very good idea to digitize our history seeing how it lasts longer and will not be lost in the future.

Scholarly

The scholar archives like Rosetti, I found to be more educational. The information was not opinionated and was alot like what you would read out of a book. Rosetti was very easy to navigate and the tabs at the top made it very easy to find exactly what you were looking for.

Experimental

I really digged into the Stolen Time Archive and it was a very fun and friendly way of learning. I almost felt as if I was playing a video game. It took me a minute though to get the hang of what I was doing, I just had to take a guess and push some buttons but after a few minutes you get the hang of it.

Differences

I think the scholary was easier to navigate than the experimental.(Mainly the stolen time the search engine part of the proust archive makes it more user friendly.) I also think that the scholary was more broad of a topic like an era in history vs a single topic or place like the experimentals.

Both kinds of archives can be very useful, the trick is in finding the right archive that covers the topic your looking for.
