“‘Hello Coed!’ A 1950s History of Gettysburg College Women” (http://keirakoch.sites.gettysburg.edu/history/hello-coed/) is an interactive website that provides a snapshot view of what life was like academically and socially for women at Gettysburg College during the 1950s. Weaved throughout this website are the personal stories and thoughts of women who attended Gettysburg College during the 1950s. This digital project aggregates information from various scrapbooks, oral histories, college publications, and photographs from Gettysburg College’s Special Collections and College Archives. To build the narrative, the digital tools Scalar and StoryMap JS were used to bring the experience of college women to life.

Keira Koch is a sophomore at Gettysburg College, studying History and Public History with a focus in Native American Studies. In the summer of 2016, she had the opportunity to conduct individual research through the Musselman Library Digital Scholarship Summer Fellowship. The digital project she created as a Digital Scholarship Summer Fellow analyzed women’s history at Gettysburg College during the 1950s. Her project used an array of digital tools including Scalar, StoryMapJS, and Voyant Tools. She plans on continuing her research on women at Gettysburg College throughout the 2016-17 academic year.
