About TRENDS IN ARCHIVES PRACTICE: This new, open-ended series of modules by the Society of American Archivists features brief, authoritative treatments -- written and edited by top-level professionals -- that fill significant gaps in archival literature. The goal of this modular approach is to build agile, user-centered resources. Each module will treat a discrete topic relating to the practical management of archives and manuscript collections in the digital age. Lots of modules are planned, and readers will be invited to mix, match, and combine modules that best satisfy their needs and interests.
