Review:

"Millar has provided an up-to-date, clear, and easy-to-use manual for records managers and archival professionals. Recommended for the professional reading shelves in archives and special collections. Historical researchers may well appreciate the book also." --Library Journal, February 2011

"Laura Millar's writing style is very readable and engaging. All in all, this book succeeds in its aim and is a worthwhile addition to the literature on managing archives." --The Australian Library Journal, November 2010

"Unlike previous textbooks that focus on nuts-and-bolts theory and practical steps in establishing an archive, Millar presents a thoughtful and comprehensive overview of the discipline. Readers will profit from Millar's treatment of a discipline that has long been bereft of few introductory texts. I highly recommend this book..." --Catholic Library World, June 2011

"...Archives: Principles and Practices is a welcome addition to the bookshelves of both the practicing archivist and the archival educator. The quality of this volume has been formally acknowledged: Millar has been named the winner of the Society of American Archivists' 2011 Waldo Gifford Leland Award....Millar's book is a valuable addition to our professional literature and will be useful for practitioners, educators, and students." --Archival Issues, 2011
