Are you planning to attend the National Archives’ 6th annual Genealogy Fair? If so, we hope you’ll come visit us at our exhibit tables. NARA’s new Open Government Plan (PDF) highlights how crucial social media is to opening up the Archives and establishes the redesign of Archives.gov as NARA’s “flagship initiative.” Stop by, bring us your questions, and tell us your ideas. We’ll have three tables set up:
- Social Media (blogs, Facebook, wikis and more)
- The Archival Research Catalog (demos of the current ARC and discussion of plans for the new online public access system)
- Web (card sorts, where you can help us determine the structure, labels and categories to be used on the revamped site)
We look forward to meeting you and hearing your thoughts!
