We’re immensely pleased to announce that A View to Hugh was named “Best Use of Web 2.0 Technologies” in the first annual Best Archives on the Web awards. The awards are hosted by the widely-read and always excellent blog ArchivesNext, which focuses on the future of archives—especially archival institutions’ use of emerging technologies. If so inclined, you may read the judges’ rationale for selecting our blog as the winner (over such venerable institutions as the Library of Congress!).
Kudos should go to ArchivesNext for highlighting new and exciting projects like ours . . . but they should also go to YOU, the readers of A View to Hugh, who have participated so usefully and enthusiastically since we launched this blog a mere 4 months ago. Please continue to read, question, and comment—your knowledge, opinions and anecdotes are invaluable as we continue to experiment with new ways of working with the “old stuff” of archives.
