This week our professor asked our class to locate an article in the news on archives and their use of technology. Instead of scouring the internet I went to the SJSU SAASC Delicious account and found a great article that worked perfectly and it took me under 5 minutes to find my gold!
If you have not already, check out this great resource. If you have a personal account on the platform you can follow us (@sjsusaasc). If you are a SJSU SAASC member you are allowed to be a contributing member to the account. Log-in details and more are located in the User-Guide on our Canvas site!
Contact us if you have any questions!
The SJSU SAASC has started a Delicious account to function as a platform for SJSU SAASC members to share the interesting things they find online about the archival world with the rest of their colleagues. The result is an amazing collaborative resource (a sort of informal database) for members that can serve a variety of purposes. Members can use the Delicious account to read articles about archives in the news, to spark assignment topics, to create visualizations like tag clouds and much more. Tagging is an important component of Delicious. Consistent tags allow members to filter the data and narrow down searches on particular topics of interest.
Not sure what Delicious is? Wondering how you can become a contributing member of the SJSU SAASC Delicious account? See the Delicious User-Guide for SJSU SAASC Members located in the "Files" section of the Canvas site to find out more.
