Archivists at the Brabant Historical Information Center (BHIC) in the Netherlands keep many archives, and also photos, videos, newspapers, historical maps and books. At the BHIC they use Social Media to highlight those collections, to keep in touch with patrons, for crowdsourcing and more. In the presentation Christian will first give a quick overview of the goals for using Social Media, of tools, achievements and the lessons learned. Depending on the audience's questions, he will then give a unique insight on specific projects. The following tools will get special attention: Website in general, Forums and Webcare, Chat, Blogs, Flickr, Twitter, Wikipedia and Facebook.
