It seems that many communities have a need to archive information or to maintain a local store of heritage and culture. In Assynt, in the north west Highlands of Scotland, the community had exactly that urge, but the physical space and continuous commitment required for a physical archive seemed insurmountable. A digital archive was therefore proposed and has been implemented. This blog notes the various aspects of choices made, technical issues encountered, and other design choices associated with community archiving. It is hoped that this information will be useful to others.
