Summary
"Explore[s] how archives are using the web to reach and interact with users, old and new, as well as to serve their own management needs. Thirteen case studies illustrate archival practitioners' own experiences in creating blogs, wikis, and interactive websites, and contributing to sites such as Flickr, YouTube, Wikipedia, and Second Life ... In addition, a series of short essays present the viewpoints of some of the primary users of archives -- historians, educators, students, and genealogists. The volume concludes with a group of reflections on the larger implications of social media for archives"--Page 4 of cover
