Day of Digital Archives, 10/06/2011

The Day of Digital Archives is an initiative to raise awareness of digital archives among both users and managers. On October 6, 2011, archivists, digital humanists, programmers, or anyone else creating, using, or managing digital archives are asked to devote their social media output (i.e. tweets, blog posts, youtube videos, etc.) to describing their work with digital archives.  By collectively documenting what we do, we will be answering questions like: What are digital archives? Who uses them? How are they created and managed? Why are they important?

What do I mean by “digital archives” well, primarily I mean archives, repositories, content management systems (what-have-yous), that collect or manage born-digital material.  Check out the DayOfDigitalArchives blog here:
