Synopsis: Like their librarian colleagues, reference archivists mediate between the user and the source material. However, given the nature of archival materials and of their holding repositories, unique issues arise. While such matters as provenance and original order and access and security continue to be vital underpinnings of their work, a myriad of other issues comes into play as reference archivists attempt to balance the competing demands of donors, researchers, the public, and the press. From the creation and dissemination of finding aids for electronic resources to the implementation of marketing strategies to increase support and strengthen service, Reference Services for Archives and Manuscripts shows you how to thrive in the changing world of archival reference.
Intended to foster an appreciation of the issues both within and beyond the field of archives, Reference Services for Archives and Manuscripts reveals that today's archivist is straddling the world of the traditional with the world of the new. The book establishes its value as it guides you through new concerns such as how to:
From Library Journal:
Ranging in topic from public services education to Internet access and the marketing of archives, here's another repackaged issue of a Haworth journal (originally published as No. 56 of Reference Librarian, 1997) that has little new to recommend it. Indeed, one contributor notes that in the past ten years "the techniques and procedures of reference services have not changed dramatically." If that is true, it unfortunately undercuts the energy that should drive a collection of essays such as these. The issues discussed here ought to be familiar to most practicing archivists. Still, there are excellent contributions on security in archives and on ethics in the archival profession. One interesting effort reports on reference service and electronic records in the National Archives. Recommended primarily for students of library and information sciences and their schools.?Barry Chad, Carnegie Lib. of Pittsburgh
