Description: Record your history and tell your story. You have gone through the process of conceiving your space, coming together establishing yourself and making it all happen. Be proud. You and your group have done well. Write it down and put it somewhere for future generations to know about it and learn how you guys did it.

Find public directories in which to list your space. This can be online or offline; public archives such as the archives of the local library, town hall or museum or online.
For hackerspaces, get listed in hackerspaces.org. Coworking spaces can use coworking directories and/or Craigslist.
When you do list, make sure it is in an appropriate format for who visits those sites. Preserving and publicizing your history is not only a historic record, but also a means to publicize your space.
