Excited to discover @USNatArchives on Tumblr, thanks to their Wikipedian-in-Residence, Dominic.
Great to see the Archives utilizing Tumblr in such a great, participatory way. Check out how you can suggest a document to be their “Today’s Document.” What’s even better? Their brand-spankin’-new Wikipedian-in-Residence has some tricks up his sleeve, so stay tuned! Can’t get over all of the Wiki-love that’s going on in DC right now. ::high five::
