April 1917 marks the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into the devastating conflict known as the "Great War." The speakers describe three collaborative projects created to commemorate the centennial of World War I. From a free secondary school curriculum to statewide and international digitization projects, the panelists seized the opportunity of the centennial to increase visibility of their institutions and educate users about unique archival resources.
