Digital archivists from the Universities of Hull (UK), Stanford, and Yale currently are collaborating on an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded project. Born-Digital Collections: An Inter-Institutional Model for Stewardship (AIMS) will produce a common framework for managing born digital archives. Each digital archivist presents a short case study to cover areas of workflow for electronic records: collection development, accessioning, arrangement and description, and discovery and access.
