It’s not really ready, but here’s the Archives 2.0 Wiki . . .

Ok, yes, I’ve been dragging my feet on this forever and have decided to walk the walk and not just talk the talk–so, even though it has lots of problems and it’s not perfect and I haven’t added all the content I want to …. here’s the Archives 2.0 wiki.

This is a replacement for the list of archives doing 2.0 stuff that I’ve had on this blog, but which was getting too long to be easily navigated. And the number of archives using these tools has exploded and I can’t keep up. Which is great news, and makes the wiki a natural step.

Like many archivists, I’m a bit of a control freak so I’m not super comfortable with opening the site up to editing. Because there’s a structure that I want to maintain and I’m not sure people will follow it properly. But, ok, let’s give it a try. Although the site has disclaimers that say you can’t edit it, right now, you can (if you register), so if you have something to add, please do so. If I find this isn’t working out, I’ll change the permissions and accept submissions via the email address: wiki [at] archivesnext.com — which you can also use if you’re not comfortable editing and you want me to add your link. But be aware that it may take me a while to get around to it.

So, here it is, add your stuff and let me know if you think there should be new pages or sections. Remember it’s a work in progress. Hope you find it useful!
