Community Archives Wiki Assignment

The purposes of this assignment are:

  1. To provide you (a student in Personal Archives!) with the opportunity to explore in detail the nature, goals and projects of a community archives of your choosing;
  2. To encourage you to connect the nature and work of that archives with ideas and themes from the articles we're reading in class; and
  3. To begin, collectively as a class, to build an open resource on community archives that can be added to by future classes and contribute to the visibility and understanding of community archives.
