[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Announcing: Awesome ArchivesSpace!

Hi Celia,

As of now, Awesome ArchivesSpace doesn’t replace the wiki. However, portions of the wiki (particularly the plugins and integrations pages) did inform the contents of the awesome list (and the awesome list links back to the wiki pages). We saw the awesome list as a different type of community resource -- topically it is more expansive than the wiki (with migrations, trainings, APIs -- and we hope this will grow further) as well as content-wise (blog posts, slide decks, journal articles).

It’s a good question to think about, though, the overlap between the two resources to ensure that the community isn’t further confused. Perhaps we could link out to the awesome list from the Community Resources wiki page.

Thanks for this - a lot of really great resources! I am confused, however. There seems to be a lot of redundancy with the ArchivesSpace wiki (https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ADC/pages/16449557/Community+Resources). Does this replace the wiki?

Dear colleagues,

We’re excited to announce a new resource for the ASpace community: Awesome ArchivesSpace https://github.com/archivesspace/awesome-archivesspace.

Awesome ArchivesSpace is an awesome list<https://github.com/sindresorhus/awesome>. It points to resources (code, blog posts, anything with a URL, really) regarding ArchivesSpace created by the community that are dispersed around the web. We hope this will function as a sort of “resource guide,” by providing a single access point to many of the amazing resources you’ve all created.

Resources in the list are loosely categorized by broad topic. Awesome ArchivesSpace was initially populated with three categories of resources: Migrations, Plug-ins, and Integrations. Through that work, additional categories of interest were identified: Implementation, Scripts and APIs, and Trainings and Documentation. We encourage the ArchivesSpace community to add links to existing categories as well as welcome new category suggestions.

The ArchivesSpace community has ownership over Awesome ArchivesSpace -- please help us continue to collect and add relevant resources to Awesome ArchivesSpace! See the Contributing Guidelines<https://github.com/archivesspace/awesome-archivesspace/blob/master/contributing.md> for information on how to update the list via pull requests.

We hope you find Awesome ArchivesSpace to be useful. Please reach out if you have any comments or questions -- we welcome your feedback!
