As the principal umbrella organization for the profession, the AHA is in a unique position to speak to and for the concerns of the professional as a whole. The resources offered on the AHA web range widely, from current information on the historical profession to archival materials that detail the development of the profession over the past 119 years. In addition to these general materials, staff have prepared special resource pages for members of the profession-teachers, public historians, and graduate students-traditionally underserved by the AHA.
The AHA’s Archives Wiki is a clearinghouse of information about archival resources throughout the world. The wiki format allows all historians to contribute—in fact, the success of ArchivesWiki depends on the participation of all. So sign up for an account, log in to edit an existing page, and create new pages to add information on more libraries and archives.
ArchivesWiki can be used by historians seeking research opportunities and even to train future historians; see the article by Keith Erekson, “Training Doctoral Students with the AHA's ArchivesWiki.”
