  • The 13 essays in this volume offer provocative commentary and analysis in the ways archivists might better document college and university campuses and serve users. Three intertwined themes run throughout the reader: the opportunities and challenges posed by ever-changing technology; the importance of cooperation and collaboration beyond the walls of the archives; and the necessity of a proactive approach in undertaking the academic archival enterprise. As these essays demonstrate, archivists can and must play an active role in documenting the character and history of their institutions by applying their talents to the challenges of this new century.
