“Living History” is an on-the-ground, day-to-day look at the organizations and communities that participate in Maine Memory Network.
From June 2008 to July 2010, content was related exclusively to the Maine Community Heritage Project, funded over a three-year period by the Institute for Museum and Library Services. When Maine Historical Society received a new IMLS grant in Fall 2010 to expand its MMN outreach, the blog was reconfigured to reflect the broader goals of the outreach program. Going forward, content would include not just the activity of additional MCHP communities, but the organizations and teams undertaking digitization and online exhibit projects, as well as features on new Contributing Partners, updates and additions to the MMN site itself, highlights on MMN staff, and other items of interest to our readers and contributors.
The blog is maintained and primarily written by Larissa Vigue Picard, Maine Historical Society’s Director of Education, with occasional guest writers. Larissa has been with MHS since May of 2009.
