A Modern Archives Reader: Basic Readings on Archival Theory and Practice
Edited by Maygene F. Daniels and Timothy Walch
"Of great benefit to students and practicing archivists. . .One should welcome this volume, use it, and look forward to others like it in the near future."
--The Public Historian
"This volume will be welcomed by instructors and students alike and will have a place on every archivist's book shelf. . .[A] well organized and attractively produced collection."
A Modern Archives Reader brings together, in a single volume, classic essays of archival literature that outline and define the basic theories of archives administration and recent articles that reexamine basic concepts and demonstrate the practical application of archival principles.
Included are essays on subject guides and archival terminology, reprints of several hard-to-obtain staff information papers from NARA, a glossary of archival terms, and suggestions for further reading.
The Reader is both a valuable reference tool for the working archivist and a textbook for students of archival administration.
