Welcome !

Thank you for your interest in digital storytelling!

This LIBGUIDE will serve as your resource for understanding and creating digital stories. Please consult the tabs/pages organized along the header for instruction, information, resources, links and selected stories.

If you are attending a Mercy Workshop on Digital Storytelling, please first go to:

  1. Prep your Story
  2. Write your Story, and then
  3. The Story Arc.

You should come to the workshop with the following:

  • A story script of about 250-300 words
  • 5-10 digital photographs (if you have paper photos we can scan them)

On the Day of the workshop, bring your images, music, and script on a USB Drive. 


Much of the content for this LIBGUIDE is distilled from the Digital Storytelling Handbook by Joe Lambert of The Center for Digital Storytelling (CDS). An excerpted version (The Digital Storytelling Cookbook) is available for download (see link on the left).  Please consult the Cookbook for more detailed history, information and tips and practices for creating powerful digital stories.
