Der Forschungsgegenstand dieses Weblogs ist das EU-Projekt co:op. co:op ist ein modernes und innovatives Projekt: Es baut auf den Erfahrungen seiner Mitglieder auf und wagt den Schritt über die zeitgemäße Zurverfügungstellung von Archivgut und die Dokumentation unserer gemeinsamen kulturellen und historischen Identität hinaus. Begründet durch das Internet und die damit einhergehende ständige Verfügbarkeit und Abrufbarkeit von Information ist es nicht nur wichtig, einen Zugang zu Wissen mit Hilfe der immer selbstverständlicher werdenden digitalen Hilfsmittel zu ermöglichen, sondern auch ein Augenmerk auf das sich neu eröffnende Potenzial zu richten: Eine differenzierte Produktion sowie eine umfassende Ergänzung von Wissen. So werden im Laufe des Projekts viele Aktivitäten umgesetzt, die diesen Ansprüchen gerecht werden. Ein großes Anliegen in diesem Zusammenhang ist der Einbezug der Bevölkerung (z.B. durch Crowdsourcing). Auch eine enge Zusammenarbeit mit und zwischen Archiven ist gefragt.
