Archives & manuscripts--administration of photographic collections by Mary Lynn Ritzenthaler( Book )

17 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current technological opportunities and challenges could not have been anticipated in the 1980s and 1990s, but now dominate much professional discourse and constitute an essential component of effective training programs. Several chapters from earlier editions have been reworked thoroughly to reflect the current record keeping climate. Although it should be noted, that the author retains her emphasis on caring for paper-based materials and more traditional formats, thereby recognizing the fact that archivists necessarily manage a diverse mix of materials and that all required good preservation practices. Also to be considered in this new edition is the fact that the informational environment for archivists and conservators has changed. This book provides an important service by synthesizing the wide-ranging literature into a coherent narrative and also offers a handy "list of resources" that archivists will want to consult on a regular basis. In conclusion, the book effectively blends both the conservation and the preservation management traditions that have enriched American archival development

Describing archives : a content standard by Society of American Archivists( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A product of the CUSTARD project (Canadian-U.S. Task Force on Archival Description), and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Describing archives : a content standard (DACS) is designed to facilitate consistent, appropriate, and self-explanatory description of archival materials and creators of archival materials. It can be applied to all types of material at all levels of description. Although the rules can be used for any type of descriptive output, examples of the application of the rules are provided for two widely used structural standards, MARC 21 and Encoded Archival Description (EAD). DACS replaces Archives, personal papers, and manuscripts (APPM) as a content standard for catalog records. The volume consists of three parts : "Describing archival materials," "Describing creators," and "Forms of names." Separate sections discuss levels of description and the importance of access points to the retrieval of descriptions. Appendices include a glossary, list of companion standards, and crosswalk to APPM, ISAD(G), ISAAR (CFP), MARC 21, and EAD. Also included is an index
