About the University of South Alabama Digital History Lab

The University of South Alabama Digital History Lab publishes multimedia original research. The lab trains scholars for a variety of careers in history education and museums, or related areas like civics and law, and new fields of data management. Each project below represents original research and the unique vision of our content creators.

A title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education and generous contributions from “Friends of History” sponsored initial equipment and renovations.

When the lab is not in use for digital history publication and classes, it is open to other departments for scheduling, and for student use in other projects.

Moving forward, we hope to grow the number of computer stations, to expand the software packages we teach, and to keep it open full time with a dedicated student-worker to oversee activities. If you would like to support these efforts, please consider donating through the link at the bottom of this page.
