The Shiloh Museum of Ozark History has a new interactive exhibit that showcases historical photos, demonstrations of how the museum preserves its images digitally, and how visitors can digitize their own.
- Keeping history: The exhibit, “Digi Know?”, illustrates a time when photos were precious possessions that were often time-consuming to create, fragile, and could be lost forever if not taken care of -- unlike today. Visitors will be able to interact with photos from different eras in the exhibit and practice digitizing their own!
- Looking back: "Digi Know?" showcases the technical side of preservation and features digitally enlarged prints of 6x9-centimeter negatives and 2.5x3-inch daguerreotypes. The Shiloh Museum has a photo collection of more than 500,000 images dating back as far as the 1840s and is in the process of digitizing them all.
