Selfie? Shelfie? #ArchiveShelfie!
This tweet was the beginning of great fun in archives! Archivists of the Dutch Regionaal Archief Tilburg came up with this fantastic idea as a follow up of #shelfie (a picture or portrait of your bookshelf). They thought: “Why not a picture or portrait of your favorite archive shelf?” And so #ArchiveShelfie was born.
Archivists and visitors of archives came up with awesome pictures. Not only shelves with boxes, papers and all other kinds of archival stuff were recorded on camera, but also minuature archivists made of paper or Lego, and even an archive dwarf, showed up.
And of course archivists photographed them selves in, near, over, between, behind, in front of and on top of shelves and even under or on top of archives :-)
You can see all this amazing pictures in the Storify of #ArchiveShelfie.
The event #ArchiveShelfie is still going on and will be for as long as it takes. So… join the event and be creative with yourselve, your shelves and your archives!
Thanks to the collegues of the Regionaal Archief Tilburg, who started this event on Twitter, for coming up with such a great idea!
Have lots of fun making your own #ArchiveShelfie!
