Working with digital archives in the classroom

Archives have gone digital. From the Modernist Journals Project to bloggers with a knack for collecting rare books, the archive itself no longer has a stable relationship to space, place, or institution. I propose a discussion about successful integration of online digital archives in the everyday classroom. What do digital documents do that the traditional archive cannot do? How do we as teachers emphasize the importance of such documents when access is at the tip of our fingers? How do you use digital archives in your classroom? How do we teach an ethics of the archive that also teaches respect for copyrighted materials?
