Boston Bombing Digital Archive

      A team of faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students at Northeastern University have created Our Marathon: The Boston Bombing Digital Archive  Our Marathon is an online memorial and archive of crowdsourced stories, photos, video, and social media related to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings and its aftermath. The archive has collected more than 3,500 digital artifacts in the past six months and hopes to collect many more. No story is too small for Our Marathon. 
     They are currently working to reach communities across the Boston area to give people the opportunity to share their stories and would like to begin working with public libraries in the Boston metro area and along the marathon route.
