New Historic University Pinboards from Digital Initiatives

Students working in the Digital Initiatives department have been pinning new historic university images to several new boards on Pinterest, a website that allows users to organize and share photos. In an August news blog post, Lena Chapin described how this department is using this social media tool to share the history of Ohio University. New boards and updated boards this semester include: 

Halloween in Athens
Greek Life
Education in the OU Catalogs (showcasing the history of the Patton College of Education) 
ROTC at Ohio U
Ohio University 1960s
Ohio University 1970s 
Ohio University 1980s 

This is just a small selection of the boards you’ll find from Digital Initiatives on Pinterest, so be sure to check out their full page. You don’t have to be a Pinterest member to use the boards. All of the images are linked to the original content, in the Ohio University yearbooks or digital archives
