Open access/collaborative digital archive

Ran across this on the Academic Commons blog:

Parallel Archive

It’s in beta testing right now, and is described as follows:

Parallel Archive (PA), developed by Open Society Archives (OSA) at Central European University (www.osaarchivum.org), is at once a personal scholarly workspace, a collaborative research environment, and a digital repository.

The Academic Commons post gives a bit more detail:

Parallel Archive… is a space where scholars and students in the humanities and social sciences can upload, store, study, and share their digitized archival sources. It is designed to facilitate individual scholarly research and publication; cross-border and cross-disciplinary collaboration; and a critical approach to documents.

I’ve not poked around in the PA holdings, but it sounds pretty cool!
