The Lowcountry Digital History Initiative (LDHI) is a digital public history platform that features online exhibition projects relevant to the history and culture of the South Carolina Lowcountry region, as well as historically interconnected sites in the Atlantic World. If you or an institution you represent are interested in developing a digital project with LDHI, please submit a brief project description to the contact below.
If accepted, the LDHI staff will work with you to develop a project plan and provide digital support. Each online exhibition project will undergo an open peer-review process with scholarly editorial contributors to assure high quality scholarship and content accessibility for a wide range of site users.
Accepted authors are expected to grant the Lowcountry Digital History Initiative (LDHI) and its representatives permission to distribute their project materials online. Project authors are responsible for acquiring rights and permissions for all multimedia materials published with their exhibitions (LDHI staff can also provide assistance with researching acquisitions).
Projects published with the Lowcountry Digital History Initiative (LDHI) are released under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license (attribution – noncommercial – no derivative works). This license applies to the original text produced for the project. The Lowcountry Digital History Initiative and its representatives will not use LDHI projects for commercial purposes, and will attribute project work to the authors and contributors. The Lowcountry Digital History Initiative (LDHI) and its representatives will not alter or transform the project work except to generate the digital formats necessary for distribution.
