Description

Now considered to be a standard guide, this newer edition of the 'How-to-do-it' Librarian manual has been updated to include more pertinent information. Now including crucial information on digital records, encoded arcival description (EAD), copyright issues, post-9/11 security concerns and international perspectives on tuse issues, it is all but a requirement for archivists of all backgrounds to have this book. Offering help in setting up an archive, appraisal and accessioning of records, acquisition strategies and policies, arrangement descriptions, reference and access, preservation and electronic records are some of many topics gone over. For archivists of all levels of experience and curiosity, having these topics covered in theory as well as in practice can do nothing but help their own works.
