In several Augmented Archives programs, students use augmented reality (AR) to create museum exhibits of the college’s most precious and historic archival materials — utilizing the technology to encourage high levels of patron interaction with primary source materials that otherwise require restricted physical access. The AR exhibits are created for the public and the many types of users who may be interested in interacting with these materials digitally. Archivists and instructional technologists work with students in different contexts, and at different points in the progress through their academic careers at Washington College, to move the overall initiative forward.
