LBHS’s New Website
Welcome to Little Beaver historical Society’s new website, the latest project of our digital media outreach program. LBHS Board Member Dave Holoweiko started our program a few years ago by creating our LBHS Facebook Page. Since then he has created (and hosts) the LBHS Podcast, produced in partnership with The Social Voice Project, a Beaver County based digital media company specializing in public history and museum media, such as podcasting, oral history programs, and event recording.
Now Dave has created a home for the museum on the internet with our new website, also created by TSVP. Another digital media project coming to the museum is a self-guided audio-visual tour that visitors can accessible through their mobile phones.
Today’s local history museums must incorporate digital media and the internet into their programs to better reach our members and the public, especially our younger generation. If we want to preserve local history and survive as a museum, we have to educate and inspire the public in new and innovative ways. We have to be forward thinking. Our museum’s digital media program does just that.~Dave Holoweiko, LBHS Board Member
