Small Archives Solution Community
Small archives represent the long tail of cultural heritage. The mission of the Small Archive Solution Community is to address the need for small organizations to assure preservation of, dissemination of, and long term access to their cultural heritage assets. As a community we can not only further preservation access and foster knowledge sharing, but can collaborate to secure resources to develop tools, training, documentation, and general solutions. This community is intended for the thousands of small cultural heritage organizations who lack resources to implement a solution on their own.
- A "Small Archive" for purposes of this discussion, is one with limited (how limited?) access to IT resources. Such an organization will have one or fewer software developers on staff, and may not even have an active webmaster.
- Use Cases: What have others done?
- Blue Sky: What would we like to have if we had unlimited resources?
