n.a record or collection of records retained for its continuing valueUlibarri 1972, 110This year we sponsored nine regional symposia in cooperation with NARS and other institutions. These meetings focused not only on the uses of archival resources but more importantly on basic problems of archives administration.Conway 1987, 184As in previous categories, the federal and state repositories are well endowed with archival resources. Three-quarters of all federal repositories and almost the same portion of state repositories reported more than 5,000 feet of holdings. All other types of repositories were comparatively smaller. Business, museum, and religious archives were the smallest, averaging fewer than 3,000 feet. No business archives reported more than 13,000 feet.Dow 1997, 448While I don’t think computers can ever adequately evaluate the “goodness of fit” between a research question and an archival resource, without a doubt they do a much better job of initial identification.Johnson and Duff 2005, 114Historical researchers may deliberately establish relationships with archivists to tap into their in-depth knowledge about archival resources.Capell 2010, 245The choice to digitize a unique archival resource and substitute the digital for the original is a decision that should not be made lightly. If digitization is used as a preservation replacement method, standards for the creation of high-quality digital masters and preservation metadata must be followed.Craft, Gwynn, and Smith 2016, 189Prior to the start of this project, archivists at UNCG had identified the University Archives Scrapbook Collection as a valuable resource that needed immediate attention. Digitization would provide the opportunity to process the collection and make it accessible to the public in an online format that would simulate the physical items. This would entail assessing the condition of each scrapbook, creating metadata relating to the object as an archival resource, digitizing and displaying the scrapbooks online, and safely rehousing them in a manner that would contribute to their future preservation.Fic 2018, 292Previously the domain of instructional librarians, there is no reason that archivists cannot also teach these skills using archival resources as a foundation for exploring a variety of information literacy concepts.funds, buildings, staff, tools, and holdings of an archivesConway 1987, 174After placing the study in the context of past surveys of archivists and institutions, and describing its design, the article characterizes the findings on five basic resources common to all archives—money, staff, holdings, facilities, and users.Harling 2014, 492HSU is an example of a different but not uncommon kind of archival repository—one that provides unique archival resources and services from a small department in a library where the institutional commitment to archives is not central.Anderson et al. 2021, 258To fulfill the request for the dormitory project in a timely fashion, maintain the integrity of the drawings, and deliver an optimal digital surrogate, staff sought out guidance from archival resources and existing research, and consulted repositories with similar missions.
