The National Archives and Records Administration is making historic documents accessible to everyone through social media. "We need to meet the users where they are," said U.S. Archivist David Ferriero in an interview with Federal News Radio.
NARA now has blogs, a Facebook page, Twitter accounts and more than 7,000 photographs on Flickr, Ferriero said. The agency also started a wiki for people to post what they have learned through doing research. NARA staff verifies that the information posted is accurate, Ferriero said.
