Understanding Archives and Manuscripts (Archival Fundamentals Series II)

James M. O'Toole and Richard J. Cox 


This volume introduces students and beginning practitioners to the fundamentals of working with archival records and manuscripts. Topics include the history of the archives profession, the organization of archival records, the values that inform practice, and contemporary challenges in the archival world. Also includes a bibliographic essay.


"This thoroughly updated version of the 1990 edition is not only the best short introduction to archives for students, new archivists, and anyone interested in archiving, but also provides the experienced archivist an invaluable summary analysis of the field's burgeoning literature and increasingly complex issues."
--TOM NESMITH, Archival Studies Program, Department of History, University of Manitoba, Canada
