pl. n.typeset documents created or received in the normal course of business and retained for their continuing valuePosner 1972, 57–58The second chapter, which I have bypassed, is concerned with the problems posed by handling certain types of documents, such as seals, pictorial documents including maps, and government documents, called printed archives in France.Dowling 1976a, 83NARS has added to its holdings the Printed Archives of the Federal Government (1774-1970). Formerly maintained by the Government Printing Office as the library collection of the Public Documents Division, this is the record set of publications of the federal government, including copies of all publications printed by GPO or by departments and agencies through their own or through privately contracted printing facilities, so long as such publications are not security classified or printed for purely administrative and internal use.Brichford 1980, 431Librarians can make major contributions in the handling of printed archives and the application of new technologies, but the techniques of collective appraisal, arrangement, and description are foreign to their practice.Mazuzan 1981, 232In the Senate, subcommittees of two committees assumed various responsibilities for different aspects of the agency’s business. In the House, three subcommittees split the responsibilities. Their committee prints must be included in this vast printed archives collection.McCrank 1983, 80Her heuristic theory about documentation rests upon the tripartite classification of all sources as primary, secondary, and tertiary—with the archivist's concern, of course, directed to the first of these. Thus in a rare books library, if the books themselves are primary documents, the distinctions between a library and an archives become blurred; one has a printed archives of a particular physical dimension.Smith 1985, 333For the purpose of the Guide the term “archives” includes all records active, semi-active, and inactive as well as printed archives which are likely to be preserved for long-term administrative purposes and research.
