Example of the power of document sharing
#1
http://www.scribd.com/doc/2251293/Michae...-catalogue

this is an excellent resource provided by Wessex..

Its one of many documents that are now available on Scribd... A Free Document sharing site..

Do you have reports? articles? --- get them on to Scribd and then link them to the British Archaeology reports group...

Build a resource...

http://www.scribd.com/groups/documents/2...and-guides

we already have 78 documents..

I will be asking EH if I can link (slurp in the parlance) their free resources.

To give you an idea... the Past Horizons Magazine on Scribd... over 200 readers ( more read it using the digipage technology .. a lot more!) over 420 people have read the Water Newton report... imagine that... a grey literature with that readership !

so come on... get back from holiday... and get these pdfs up there...

You have them... now share them with as many people as possible...

blimey even a report on some test trenches I did in Melros has had dozens of views!

Just a quick bump up....

Do you have reports in pdf format?

Do you think you could spend 10 minutes uploading them to scribd and then the UK archaeology group?
http://www.scribd.com/groups/view/2350-b...and-guides

131 reports so far

get in touch.... info@bajr.org

it is sooooooooooooo easy

get an account = 30 seconds
press upload....
enter the documents you want to upload....
add a title and a quick description (usually takes me about 2 mintutes per file)


thats it!

I can then add them to the UK archaeology file group.... lets get the reports out there...

and once again... NOT in competition to OASIS just another accessible and useful way to disseminate... :face-approve:

I havent been on holiday yet. I have had some builder architect combo who have managed to keep me on hold all week so far for a pittance. What I mean is that what ever I find for them I am going to inter in obscurity. Sod-hem and the rest. I need to have a very good other reason to further publicise my association with their landownership and I think that means dosh.

Perhaps time for a career change then pal.

I'll stick my reports up David. I assume there's no size limitations?

Hi David - did you know you can get your hands on the Scribd API now> http://www.scribd.com/platform/documentation/api

Apprarently it enables any website to use the scribd back-end, so people can upload via your website (though I think the doc itself is still hosted on scribd).
