DMS 300--Intro to Digital and Media Studies (Spring 2020)
The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library recently unveiled a new digital exhibit – "Growing Up in Toledo." Created in collaboration
with the Lourdes University Digital and Media Studies Program, the exhibit was produced from data generously provided by the
TLCPL Local History and Geneaology Department and researched by students in the University’s Spring 2020 DMS 300: Introduction to
Digital and Media Studies class.
The joint project involved six Lourdes student researchers and exhibit contributors from the Lourdes Digital & Media Studies (DMS) class
working closely with TLCPL’s Local History and Genealogy department staff members John Dewees, Ed Hill, and Kristel Schetter.
Students in ENG 405: Shakespeare selected scenes from Richard III, Shakespeare's history play about the

the story of the play in an updated and entertaining way.
