Administering Archival Automation: Development of In-House Systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

For many archivists, the best route to an automated information system may be through use of their home institutions' central computing facilities. These in-house systems can be custom-designed to meet local needs and can be relatively inexpensive. This article will focus on the planning, implementation, and maintenance of in-house automated access systems for archives. The article's management focus will have a broad application to those pursuing other routes to archival automation.
