Story Maps have become an increasingly popular way to share digital content in an innovative and interactive way. Users can gain an understanding of issues and experiences using Story Maps, which can show data in a different way. In this session, the Minnesota Digital Library's Metadata Librarian and the Curator of the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest will share their experiences collaborating on a Story Map project. This project documents one of Minnesota's most iconic phenomena: "going up north to the lake," as well as the Antisemitism some Minnesotans faced in the mid-20th century. Our Story Map explores the many nuances associated with both a particular time period and place. We will provide an overview of our project, including our workflow, challenges, and eventual outcome.
