Archives Outside: not only for archivists

The Archives Outside blog describes itself as a meeting place for people who care for archival collections in New South Wales and researchers who wish to access them.

As such, it may be easy to think that is may not be relevant to anyone outside NSW or someone who is not directly exploring their collections. To ignore it would be a pity though. The blog does deal with Collections in NSW and publishes on archival topics, such as Preservation, Regional Repositories, and Archives Made Easy. It was through a posting to its Digital 2.0 category it came to our attention though. The article Crowdsourcing for Archives and Libraries lists a number of interesting projects where crowdsourcing is used, not only in archives and libraries in other fields as well. The comments submitted by readers of the article take the discussion further and pose some relevant questions. Do read the article and take part in the message exchange!
