The Media Library is where your digital memorabilia will live for your About Page, Highlights, Oral Histories, and Video.  You will upload media to your Media Library from your computer or USB Drive in order to then put it onto your site.

Please Note: When putting images into the Mapping the Legacy Grid, those images will be automatically added to your Media Library in case you’d like to use those images elsewhere on your site. However, in Mapping the Legacy your images are uploaded directly from your computer or USB Drive. You cannot access your Media Library while in Mapping the Legacy.

Helpful Tip: You can upload a file to the Media Library that is maximum 98 MB. For an audio file, this should be about an hour of edited footage.
