The constants of change and continuities: Perspectives on three decades of academic archives

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although there have been changes in information technology and in higher education since the publication of College and University Archives: Selected Readings in 1979, the core fundamentals of college and university archives remain the same. If academic archivists are to make progress in their mission to ensure selection, preservation, and accessibility of their institutions' records, they need to be engaged in all areas that challenge their resources, training, and even their professional position. Despite the daunting nature of these challenges, there are some approaches that are appropriate and bring attention to the critical issues and opportunities archivists face.
