  • Edited by Randall C. Jimerson

  • The 28 essays reprinted in this volume represent significant American writings on archives and the role of archivists in modern society. The essays cover the topics of Understanding Archives and Manuscripts, Archival History, Selection and Documentation, Appraisal, Arrangement and Description, Reference and the Use of Archives, Preservation, Electronic Records, and Management.

    These articles provide important perspectives both on basic elements of archival practice and on fundamental principles in archival theory and methodology.

    As Harvard University Archivist Megan Sniffin-Marinoff noted in her review of the book for American Archivist (65:1): "What deserves careful reading . . . is Jimerson's seventeen-page introduction. It is brilliant and . . . lays the groundwork for a commanding understanding of the thought and development of the profession in the two decades of the 1980s and 1990s."
