Zwischen Facebook, Twitter und Blogs... (english version)

  1. 1. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) <ul><li>1. Introduction: The term Web 2.0 is now more relevant than ever. The so-called social media, ie. Web 2.0, point out to a new generation, a new perception of the Web. We mean collaborative and interactive elements of the WWW. The content and information is created interactively, edited and distributed; networking is an important keyword. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs </li></ul><ul><li>Microblogging (Twitter) </li></ul><ul><li>Social networks (Facebook) </li></ul><ul><li>Social bookmarks </li></ul><ul><li>Podcasts </li></ul><ul><li>Imagehoster (Flickr) </li></ul>
  2. 2. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) Libraries and museums are using these new media much more frequently than archives. An example: as Twitter in Germany is used by extremly few archives (currently there are two archives, Frankfurt and Speyer - and?), use plenty of museums and similar organizations this short blog service (like „NRW-Forum Düsseldorf“: more than 13.000 Follower).
  3. 4. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) 2. Web 2.0 in archives: Facebook and Twitter 3. City archives Speyer: Web 2.0 (concept and implementation)
  4. 5. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) <ul><li>2. Web 2.0 in archives: Facebook and Twitter </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook: </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook has currently over half a billion (Milliarde) users, it is the world's largest social network. Users can create a free profile, share with &quot;Friends&quot; and &quot;follow&quot; them. Likewise, messages (&quot;Status Messages&quot;), photos and the like are written and uploaded, there is an email- and a chat-feature. External websites may be linked to the own profile, other Web 2.0-applications can be integrated. Facebook can be an important instrument of promotion for companies and for cultural bodies (archives, libraries, museums …) as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Many archives already have a Facebook presence (USA, Australia, UK … ; much less: other european states/central europe). </li></ul>
  5. 10. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) <ul><li>2. Web 2.0 in archives: Facebook and Twitter </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook: </li></ul><ul><li>Other archives are (it seems) in „fear“ of Facebook, and even Web 2.0: Germany is to be mentioned here. There is almost no single archive that works with Facebook and Twitter. The State Archives Munich (Staatsarchiv München) last year was (of course as the first archive in Germany) exactly four days on Facebook (12 to 15 July 2010). Then it had to be closed (Blog Archivalia: „Causa Facebook“). </li></ul>
  6. 12. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) <ul><li>2. Web 2.0 in archives: Facebook and Twitter </li></ul><ul><li>Twitter: </li></ul><ul><li>Twitter is the most important service for micro-blogging (140 characters per message/Tweet). Tweets are drafted or even subscribed (to „follow“). Tweets of others can be disseminated as Retweets. </li></ul><ul><li>Even more than at &quot;Facebook&quot; are at &quot;Twitter&quot; archives in comparison to libraries and museums in minority. In Germany just two archives „twitter“: Frankfurt am Main city archives and Speyer city archives (since few weeks). </li></ul>
  7. 15. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) <ul><li>2. Web 2.0 in archives: Facebook and Twitter </li></ul><ul><li>Twitter: </li></ul><ul><li>Also in the field of research and science is Twitter very widespread. The short message service provides at conferences as a resource (conference-Hashtags, Twitterwalls). Example: Conference Archives on the web. Experiences, challenges, visions (Vienna 2010). </li></ul>
  8. 17. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) <ul><li>3. City archives Speyer: Web 2.0 (concept and implementation) </li></ul><ul><li>The city archives of Speyer is one of the most important and oldest municipal archives in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate (Germany). The tradition goes back to the 12th Century. It is the central point of contact for all questions of local history and the historic memory of the city. This is even important than today Speyer itself is a cultural and touristy-marked city. </li></ul><ul><li>The city archives has been in the public perception still not very present. This was also on the Homepage, which contained little more than a few facts about the history and the collections and contact information. A revision of the site has already taken place, the information has been expanded. The renewed website is the basis for Web 2.0. </li></ul>
  9. 18. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) <ul><li>3. City archives Speyer: Web 2.0 (concept and implementation) </li></ul><ul><li>Information and current news that can be found on the website are also common, for example, on Facebook. On the other hand, a larger and younger audience is addressed, opportunities for contact and discussions will be offered (archivists, historians, Speyer-audience and region…). </li></ul><ul><li>Some examples: New finding aids; information about new charges/transfers to the archive; fotos; everyday-work in archive; events; history of the city … </li></ul><ul><li>The city Archives started (officially) in March 2011 in Web 2.0 (Facebook, Twitter and Slideshare). The archive is next to the tourism-agency of Speyer and the press-office a pilot-project. The city has commissioned an advertising agency with the advice of the projects. </li></ul>
  10. 19. Between Facebook, Twitter and blogs. New forms of work for archives and archivists by the example of the city archives Speyer Radenci, 8.4. 2011; Joachim Kemper (Speyer) <ul><li>3. City archives Speyer: Web 2.0 (concept and implementation) </li></ul><ul><li>The Facebook-page will start in April 2011; it will be a central workspace for the archive. </li></ul><ul><li>Twitter serves as an active agent in public relations. The number of followers is still relatively low, but it will certainly increase, combined with Facebook (no question). Only when everything is in Facebook, the archives and the city will really make advertising for Web 2.0. </li></ul><ul><li>A small by-product is the site Slideshare . It is an application for presentation of PowerPoint etc. Here we will gradually publish articles and presentations. </li></ul><ul><li>But most importantly: Since the city archives Speyer has relatively few staff, therefore the activities should be well planned. Nothing is worse than a Facebook- or Twitter-presence, which is static and does not respond to user queries. As the city archives Speyer is very much involved in the Web 2.0 concept of the city, I am actually very optimistic about the future. </li></ul>
