Archive of Our Own

We are creating an open-source software package, OTW-Archive, which will allow fans to host their own robust, full-featured archives, which can support an archive on a very large scale of hundreds of thousands of stories and has the social networking features to make it easier for fans to connect to one another through their work.

The OTW is using this software to provide the Archive of Our Own: a noncommercial and nonprofit central hosting place for fanfiction and other transformative fanworks, where these can be sheltered by the advocacy of the OTW and take advantage of the OTW's work in articulating the case for the legality and social value of these works.

The Archive of Our Own is in beta as of October, 2008. More details on the project can be found in the FAQ, through the Archive's roadmap and AO3 News posts.
