I am researching:

  1. the online access systems of public archival institutions
  2. the management of personal digital archives by private individuals and families
  3. the enabling technologies and practices (e.g. Web 2.0) that can better integrate public and private archival collections to enhance a community’s collective memory

    Yes, I see. I think this is what one archivist/museum curator was trying to steer me toward. That is, integrating my direction and interest in personal archives & making these accessible (so, in part, creating digital archives), with what this particular institution is doing/has done to provide online access. This, as you indicate above, would enhance a community’s collective memory. You’re lightyears ahead in understanding what’s already available whereas I’m just beginning to see what organizations are currently using in terms of technology to provide access & for documenting.
