There are two kinds of content on the Arctos wiki site:

Arctos Documentation and “How-to Guides” can be created or edited by anyone who is a member of the ArctosDB “Users” team (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 in order to make changes.

Curators/Collection Managers who want the ability to create or edit Documentation and “How-to Guides” should contact and in order to be added to the “Users” team. 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 “Users” team (e.g., their supervisor) who can then post the content.
