On December 3, 2020, I interviewed Bruce Jacobson as part of the Mount Desert Island Historical Society’s Chebacco Chats live webinar series. Bruce told us about the History Trust, a collaborative of 12 island collecting organizations that have committed to the goal of making their historical collections accessible to the public on a common digital platform. Bruce showed examples of how the system works and some favorite materials from the collection.
Chebacco is the annual magazine of Mount Desert Island Historical Society. It is sent free to members of the Society. Copies may be purchased for $20 each.
