The American Archivist, the flagship publication of the Society of American Archivists, reviewed OurDigitalWorld and its VITA toolkit:

The user is able to interact with the collections by creating connections between images by supplying their own additions or comments. User comments can facilitate building the historical record. Users are able to name, date, and more fully describe digital objects that contain no or inaccurate identifying information.
