When the Archives Get Social: The Joe McDonald and Leola Lewis Project


Speaker: Donnelyn Curtis, Director of Research Collections and Services, University of Nevada at Reno

Donnelyn Curtis, the Director of Research Collections and Services at the University of Nevada at Reno, recently introduced Joe McDonald and Leola Lewis, two early twentieth century students, to the digital age. Curtis is the creator of the Facebook pages where Joe and Leola post about poignant song lyrics, parties on the Reno campus, and "current" (that is, current in 1913) bills in the legislature. Curtis will join us to talk about the creative process that led to the Facebook project, the hurdles that she's had to overcome (including Facebook's deleting the profiles for violating the terms of service), and what the future holds for Joe and Leola.
