A Sample Timeline… and a Bit of Coding

As an example of how you can use Timeline JS to tell a digital story using narration and primary sources… Click here to see a timeline I produced last February, after the sudden death of long-serving Bethel history and political science professor G.W. Carlson.

One trick I used in that timeline that we didn’t get to yesterday… You can use some simple HTML code to include links in the narrative text and captions. For example, if you wanted to build a link to the Library of Congress into your timeline, you would enter the following text in your spreadsheet:

<a href="http://loc.gov">The Library of Congress</a>
