(Access Password: joint2020) In this Blitz presentation, the presenter will demonstrate the use of TimelineJS, a tool developed by Northwestern University’s KnightLab, to create interactive, virtual timeline exhibits featuring photographs and documents from the presenter’s online digital collections.  The tool is open-source and requires only a Google Sheets spreadsheet, so even novice users can create a timeline for use in a LibGuide or other website.  The presenter has used this free tool for storytelling most recently to help mark the 90th birthday of Bluffton University’s Musselman Library, an OPAL member library since 1998.
