Arctos Documentation and "How-to Guides" can be created or edited by anyone who is a member of the Arctos Working Group (see How to Use GitHub for Arctos). That team has "write" access to the ArctosDB/documentation-wiki repository in GitHub. Anyone can view the content, but you need to be added to the "Users" team by an ArctosDB administrator to make changes.
Curators/Collection Managers who want the ability to create or edit Documentation and "How-to Guides" should contact email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to be added "Users" team. Attend a working group demo on how to edit the site. We encourage Curators/Collection Managers to engage students in writing "How-to Guides." However, students will not be able to post them to the wiki site; instead, they will need to submit the content to a member of the ArctosDB team (e.g., their supervisor) who can then post the content.
