Abstract

This paper focuses on the Small Histories research project, a multi-user, database-powered online system for the uploading, storage, display and juxtaposition of multiple individuals' life histories. It discusses issues encountered in the project's initial interface design and testing stage, particularly around the display of users' stories, use of metadata and choices of web technologies. The paper also explores broader issues connected with the creation of narratives via the Small Histories system.
