Reading Her Queenly Coiffure: A Collaborative Approach to the Study of Marie-Antoinette’s Hairstyles by Helene Bilis, Jenifer Bartle, Laura M. O’Brien, and Ruth R. Rogers

Four colleagues–a faculty member, a digital services librarian, a research librarian, and a curator of Special Collections–take turns describing their role in creating an undergraduate student project around an eighteenth-century almanac that belonged to Marie-Antoinette. In recounting the steps taken, the collaborative process, the student research, and the analysis of the contents of the Trésor des Grâces almanac, we share the lessons learned for completing a digital exhibit over the course of one semester.
