Description: Archival collections offer unique challenges to their custodians. Though each collection is intimately tied to the people, era, and events that generated the collection, and thus needs to be organized and described individually, archivists recognize the imperative to standardize their procedures for consistency. This book provides an introduction to the common organizational and descriptive practices that have developed in response to the particular requirements of archival collections.
