Historical Archives Focus of Viva Mexico Talk

As part of the year-long Viva Mexico program, UK Libraries and the College of Arts and Sciences will host a speaker on “Mexico on the Digital Frontier: Creating Access in Archives and Libraries.” Linda Arnold, professor emerita of history at Virginia Tech University, will speak on the topic on Wednesday., March 26, at 2 p.m. in the Niles Gallery of the Little Fine Arts Library. A reception will follow in the Lucille Little Fine Arts Library foyer.

Arnold spent 29 years at Virginia Tech, where she developed and taught more than a dozen undergraduate writing-intensive courses, and directed nearly 30 undergraduate independent studies.  A pioneer in digital history, she and  her students, created the “Mexican-American War and the Media” , a website that makes primary source documents on the Mexican–American War available for researchers.
