Onine workshop - Generation Archives 2.0

Generation Archives 2.0: Tools for Promoting Your Archives on the Web

This workshop will explore more than 20 free-to-inexpensive Web 2.0 technologies that archivists can use to promote and market their digital and physical collections to an ever-expanding globally connected community.

Participants will learn what Web 2.0 is and what it means for archives and will visit a number of websites to see first-hand how archivists are using Web 2.0. The workshop will consist of a mix of demonstrations, case-study examples and lively group discussion. Participants will also learn planning strategies for implementing these tools, including developing policies and allocating staff resources.

Who Should Attend
Although the class is geared toward archivists, staff from libraries and cultural heritage organizations who are interested in promoting digital and physical collections on the web will benefit from this class. The class will appeal to beginners as well as to organizations that are already starting to use Web 2.0 and want to learn more about different tools.
