The Public Gallery is where you can browse and view Public Archives created by other Permanent.org members.
What is the Public Gallery?
The Permanent.org Public Gallery is the collection of the public archives created by members of Permanent.org. These are archives that other Permanent members have created to tell the stories of themselves, their families, their communities, or their organizations. Only material that has been published is available in a Permanent Public Archive. Any other files are still retained privately in your Private Workspace and not included in your Public Archive. Learn more about workspaces in this article.
The Permanent Public Gallery is an important part of our mission to educate and provide historical benefit to the public and future generations.
