Situation DÄNEMARK2.0 among Danish archives Charlotte S. H. Jensen
Who am I? • Charlotte S. H. Jensen • Development consultant • Works at The National Museum of Denmark • On part-time loan to State Archives of Denmark • Background in – and great love of archives
The archival landscape • State Archives • Other public archives • Private archives (”local archives”)
These are my topics today • Social • Sharing • Crowdsourcing
Most archives use Facebook for… • Promoting off-line events • Promoting products (Yearbook etc.) • Branding of the physical archives Mention of participation in events Links to articles etc. from the press etc. Does that work? Does it help achieve mission?
Why do they do it? • The project is important - not the institution • An urge to help people like themselves • Making a lasting ressource is important • Aknowledgement is necessary
Challenges right now • Connect online and onsite • Embrace 2.0 tech to help people use archives • Take crowdspourcing to the next level • Make online ressources more nerd-friendly • Become mobile – get responsive
