Building web-based community or themed archives presents a new set of challenges to the profession. A cohort of public libraries engaged in this process invites your participation and ideas: How do we best approach the technical, curatorial, and outreach challenges related to building web-based special collections that are representative of the diverse populations we serve? And how transparent are we in working collaboratively and including diverse public stakeholders in the selection process of archiving community websites?
