3:00-3:50 pm CT (2:00-2:50 pm MT) Session by Eric John Abrahamson, Black Hills Knowledge Network and Sam Slocum, Rapid City Public Libraries
As an online, library-based information resource, the Black Hills Knowledge Network is building a virtual community archives for our region. Our online archives include primary documents and images. Shared on the site and via social media, these archives help communicate the history of our region. With a stronger sense of history comes a greater attachment to place. These resources provide Black Hills Knowledge Network users a foundation for dialogue on important public policy issues. In this session, participants will learn how to link history with current public policy issues to energize community engagement and strengthen decision-making.
