Description

Panelists from diverse repositories—a historical society, university, corporate archives, and library consortium—discuss how they apply the principles of original order and provenance when arranging and describing modern collections with multiple formats. They reflect on the value of these traditional concepts in the age of electronic records, online finding aids, and MPLP. Commentator Jane Zhang discusses her dissertation on original order in digital archives and relates her findings to our panelists experiences.
