In the year since the bombing at the Boston Marathon, the digital archive project Our Marathon of Northeastern University in Boston has collaborated with WBUR, the Boston City Archives, and others to bring together stories, videos, photos, social media, and memorial messages in an effort to help the public understand the tragic events that took place during the week of April 15th, 2013 and to promote the healing process. As a community project, they have been hosting events in the Boston area where attendees are able to share their stories. Find out where and when these events are being held on their events page.

The Archive-It team is proud to contribute to the Our Marathon project with web content from our 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing collection. This collection is comprised of contributions from individuals which include news articles, blogs, social media sites, and organizational websites related to the bombing. The full Archive-It collection can be viewed here.
