Abstract

A typed journal from WWI fuels a young man’s dreams of time travel and allows us to explore the power of personal stories and photos, together with archival collections, to build connections across generations. These items take us through space and time, and the magical ability of cultural memory institutions to help bring these incredibly compelling dreams to life. The World Wide Web provides the cultural, technological, and legal frameworks to open the doors to innovation and imagination, and also enables libraries, archives and museums the world over to play a critical role. Not only are these efforts fostering global collaboration and sharing, but they’re also attracting new audiences that are interacting with and improving collections and institutions like never before.
