Best Archives on the Web, 2009

By Amanda Ross on April 29, 2009

In recent weeks, Durham, North Carolina, has been flooded with generous sunlight and summer-like highs.  These soaring temperatures are no match for our burgeoning pride, however, as Peeling Back the Bark has earned some virtual hardware.

We are pleased to report that ArchivesNext has announced the selections for the Best Archives on the Web awards for 2009.  Among some stiff competition, Peeling Back the Bark has been named a winner in the “Best Institutional Blog” category!  As the judges’ comments revealed, this honor, gentle readers, is due in no small part to you:

Interesting short articles with lots and lots of archival focus.  Best of all, there is evidence of an active readership of this blog…

We will continue to explore the riches of the Forest History Society Library and Archives if you will continue to be our “best of all”: an active and interested constituency.  Agreed?  Agreed!  Good deal.
