Some other cool archives blogs you should look at & things to do

I hope this blog will always be first in your hearts ;), but just in case you’ve missed them, here are some others that I’ve found recently you might want to check out:

  • Archives, Records and Artefacts – “written by staff from Archive, Records Management and Museum Services and the Centre for Archive and Information Studies at the University of Dundee” – looks like they will have a wide range of topics, see the latest, for example
  • Practical E-Records – from Chris Prom (“to share information concerning a research project I am directing at the Center for Archive and Information Studies (CAIS) at the University of Dundee. The project aims to evaluate software and conceptual models that archivists and records manager might use to identify preserve, and provide access to electronic records.”)
  • L’Archivista – particularly good on electronic records issues
  • Sowing Culture – highlights selections from the IMLS Digital Collections & Content Project
  • Archives Outside – “A meeting place for people who manage archival collections around New South Wales” – but it’s great for the rest of us too!
  • Also, if you work with digital images, here’s a survey about DAMS (that’s Digital Asset Management Systems) you should consider taking.

    And, another reminder, please add your repository’s blog, Twitter or Facebook account, or whatever other 2.0-esque efforts you have to the Archives 2.0 wiki. You can edit this, but if you don’t care to, send a message to the wiki email and I will add it for you (but there may be a delay …).

      Thanks for the link to my survey, Kate. I’m looking forward to writing a long piece about what archivists are looking for in a DAMS and how these products are meeting our expectations. Look for this on the A&A listserv and on the Penn Museum Archives blog.

      Thanks for the shout-out, Kate, and thanks especially for highlighting the new Practical E-Records blog, which somehow flew under my radar screen!
