James Monroe 3D provides a unique approach to fashion history and material culture with 3D scans of clothing items and objects such as a musket in the James Monroe Museum collections.

Another site entitled James Monroe 3D displays three-dimensional scans of various objects in the James Monroe Museum collections in addition to some interviews with the museum curator.

JM Politoons focuses on digitally displaying the political cartoons connected to the James Monroe Museum collection.

The James Monroe Papers focuses on the papers of James Monroe, specifically “the letters written by James Monroe to the Secretary of State from August 1794 to August 1796” during his time as Minister of France according to the site’s about page.
