Clio: Bringing Local History Home

Catherine Arnott Smith, Professor, The Information School, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Clio is both a website and a mobile app designed to teach users about the U.S. history all around them. Nonprofit in nature and absolutely free to use, Clio is also an excellent educational tool to build community around local history. In this session, Professor Arnott Smith will explain how she uses Clio in her teaching, cover the basics of Clio, and demonstrate how local historical societies and history buffs can help contribute to the large knowledgebase of Clio!
