As an institution, we are examining our use of social media to make sure we are reaching the widest possible audience. In the next few months you should see some changes. The title of the blog may become “History Nut” and the style of the blog will definitely change to be more in keeping with our History Nut theme and our web page design and color scheme at www.chs.org.
We will also be more inclusive, adding posts about items in the museum collection and library in addition to manuscripts. Our collections are so diverse, we could keep blogging about old favorites and newly acquired items for years and years. You can get a glimpse of our collections by checking out our online catalog for library and manuscript materials at http://chs.kohalibrary.com and our museum collections at http://emuseum.chs.org:8080/emuseum.
The blog will continue to provide additional information about collection items and often tie them to outside events or other things in our holdings that people might not know about. An object or document is only as interesting as the story it tells, which we will strive to do.
So stay tuned for some exciting changes!
