The US National Archives Gets GIPHY; Grows Garden of Historical GIFs

Giphy 3

The US National Archives has launched its very own page on GIPHY (the go-to site for animated GIFs). As of now they have over 150 GIFs made from historical images and footage, including moments from the film The John Glenn Story, Ernest Hemingway smiling and sipping a drink, snippets from 20th Century newsreels, and more.

Via Hyperallergic:

Darren A. Cole, with the web and social media branch of the National Archives Office of Innovation, told Hyperallergic that NARA initially saw the impact of GIF content through their Today’s Document blog on Tumblr, where a curious patent for a one-wheeled vehicle or stereographic portrait of Walt Whitman got a new spark through animation.

“We can feature content that many users might not be aware of, and boost the profile of the agency with people who either might not be aware of the us, or may have forgotten about us since that high school field trip to see the Constitution,” Cole said. “GIFs help keep us relevant, but also further the agency’s mission of providing access to our holdings to the public.”

To this project, we say, Cheers!
