Online Resources from the Lowcountry Digital History Initiative

I found the Lowcountry Digital History Initiative today and thought that list members would be interested in exploring it further. It can be found at http://ldhi.library.cofc.edu/ and includes 13 online exhibitions, some of which deal with slavery and the slave trade.

I hope others also find it interesting.
