NARA gets a wiki

The National Archives in American have launched their own wiki called Our Archives

From their press release the wiki:

“Our Archives” provides a collaborative space for members of the public, researchers, and staff to share knowledge about National Archives records, resources and research. The wiki is an opportunity for researchers, historians, archivists, and citizen archivists to work together to create pages on specific records or topics as well as to share information and resources to connect with other researchers.

Users may participate in the wiki in the following ways:

  • Create new pages and edit pre-existing pages about historical subjects and records held by the National Archives;
  • Expand upon a description in the National Archives online catalog;
  • Publish a transcription of a document;
  • Add information to build upon other resources;
  • Collaborate with other users working on similar subjects or to work together on research projects;
  • Join in the discussions for various pages
