The Maine Historical Society (MHS), in partnership with the Maine State Library (MSL), will launch a statewide program that will encourage individuals to become active participants in the history of their places. The three-year project builds on and continues development of the Maine Memory Network (www.mainememory.net), a nationally recognized digital museum. Working closely with local museums, historical societies, libraries, and schools throughout Maine, MHS staff will develop and pilot tools, resources, and an outreach program that give individuals the ability to participate in and contribute to Maine Memory. Until now, only institutional partners have been able to contribute to the network.
