Kate,I wouldn't nsirseaecly use a list that is just for small repositories because I find the current list has been useful when I've posted in the past. There is enough variety on the listserv that almost always produces responses to inquiries. I like though of more time and focus for roundtables and the like. I suppose the challenge would be for everyone in a particular boat to identify and connect themselves. My institution is difficult to connect because while we are small, we are well staffed and funded with the exception of an in house IT staff. There lies most of our difficulties which prevents us in some ways of participating with things like Texas Archival Resources Online (TARO). But we scan still use Web 2.0 tools like Flickr and the Portal to Texas History to get records online. Most small archives services seem to cater to lone arrangers or places with very small budgets. So maybe its just us!
