This area of the Access to Memory wiki includes information about our community of users. Example AtoM sites, success stories, lists of public contributions to the AtoM project, and more will be collected in this category.

We will also maintain a section where users can share resources that they have created that other users might find helpful - guides and tutorials, customizations, and more! Have you created any resources you'd like to share? Let us know and we'll add it!

Development documentation

This area of the wiki will capture documentation related to ongoing development of AtoM - feature proposals, developer discussions, modules under development consideration, and more. Developers can discuss the best solutions to issues, and analysts will post design considerations based on their own domain knowledge as well as feedback from the community. When relevant, we will also try to document the evolution of features over time.

Contributions are welcome!
