Jessica -- You are AMAZING. Glad to have you on board. Let me investigate your links and stuff, and then we'll see what we can do.

Right now, I'm doing a paper which is a Case Study on the organization of music in a NYC record store, Other Music. I'm a little overwhelmed with this and other assignments at this point in the semester... (I also have 2 part-time jobs in addition to being al full time MLIS student.)

But I think we're onto something great here.

I've had a brain itch for a while now about distributed online archives, like a wiki archive almost, that allows for people all over to add their parts of the collection themselves, with a small amount of controlled vocabulary and administration from a central node. I wrote a project proposal for my label archive for a digital libraries/archives class last year and am happy to help with grant-writing, project proposal writing, etc. I tend to nerd out on technical specs and have loads of stuff about how to "properly" archive audio files if you want to get really profesh about it.

They are RIGOROUS.) But, if you want to avoid bothering with hosting, Omeka has just started an online hosting service: http://omeka.net/ for easier, one-click archive-building. Anyway, it might be possible, using either of these, to make something that people can really easily add to themselves if they have things to add.

>> The Zine Wiki and the Queer Zine Archive are two digital zine archiving projects that I know about. Elka Zobl hosts the Grrl Zine Network, not an archive but a useful resource. A few years back Anne-Marie Paine (aka Miss AMP) and Corinne Gerber started an online riot grrrl zine archive, The Riot Project, which has sadly died. But they probably still have many of the scans available, should a new online home be found for them...

Here's an example of an digital library: http://sdrc.lib.uiowa.edu/dada/digitaldadalib/index.html I would like the Women in Punk multimedia library to have actual digital versions of artifacts like zines and books long out of print. Nicole's archive is wonderful, but my idea is a step in an "equal but different" direction. Does an online library exist for riot grrrl?

So I could apply my new learning to a topic I know and love as well as honor her legacy?

I would like to start small just for class projects and assignments, and then maybe I could get some grant money to fund something bigger?
