Happy New Year: New (Ad)ventures on the Way Soon!

Happy New Year . . .  and with the new year come new (ad)ventures!  Digging History will be “going digital” by mid-January (if all goes as planned).  What does “going digital” mean?  (Update:  looks like it will be sometime Tuesday, January 16 for opening day!)
