DIY wiki archives

The National Archives has launched a ‘wiki based’ site to help access its huge materials that spans 900 years from the Doomsday Book to today. It has been suitably named ‘Your Archives’ and is aimed at sharing content, submitting articles and uploading transcripts of documents.

The national Archive is aware that there is a huge volume of material to add to the catalogue and this way it will be more productive than them doing it themselves.
