This collection of varied case studies demonstrates the value and possibilities of participatory documentation initiatives, framing them in the context of the turn towards archives as collaborative spaces and the opportunities presented by the internet. Readers will find the volume useful as a source of creative models for community memory projects, but less so for addressing the challenges of long-term preservation and access in community archives. Overall, it is a valuable resource for those taking on community and participatory archives efforts.
