The Case for Digitizing Fiction with History.
Shires, Nancy Patterson
North Carolina Libraries, v60 n3 p46-52 Fall 2002
Including relevant fiction along with digitized history helps the reader to deal effectively with the various letters, photos, and census records or the individual pieces of history revealed. For educational, social, psychological, and biological reasons, fiction is important in the study of history. Not only can novels and stories be valuable additions to digital history Web sites, but narrative structure itself can enhance their usefulness. (AEF)
