The Immigration History Research Center (IHRC) is proud to announce the launch of immigrantstories.umn.edu. The website helps anyone make, share, and preserve a digital story about a personal or family migration experience.

The IHRC shares these digital stories through the Minnesota Digital Library and the Digital Public Library of America. It also arranges the digital stories’ preservation in the IHRC Archives, North America’s largest archive of immigrant and refugee life.

Curriculum:  The website has free curricula to help librarians and educators teach others to make digital stories with the website. Each curriculum contain schedules, lesson plans, worksheets, a grading rubric, and written instructions that correspond with the website’s tutorial videos. The are curricula for high schools, colleges, English language learners, and public workshops. Visit: http://z.umn.edu/iscurriculum
