In remembrance of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, UT Digital Humanities Librarian Ashley Maynor created a multimedia web documentary, titled The Story of the Stuff, that explores what motivates the public to send memorials to victims and survivors of such tragedies. Today marks three years since the Sandy Hook shooting.

American Libraries recently interviewed Maynor about her project, what she learned, and how other communities can cope with similar tragedies.
