Technical Leaflet 294: Creating Digital Content for Museums and Historic Sites is an AASLH Technical Leaflet. AASLH Technical Leaflets are brief, practical guides on how to do history.
This leaflet explains how sites can plan and create content for digital audiences that is effective, mission-driven, and relevant. Even with small budgets and few staff, sites can create social media posts, videos, blogs, virtual tours, webinars, and more that are high quality, engaging, and reach more audiences than ever before.
