Historical Photographs: A County-Wide Organization.
This basic outline for the organization of photograph collections is designed for use by individual agencies as well as by people interested in a cooperative collection organization that can encompass a regional network. The working manual provides organizational techniques for the evaluation of historical, monetary, and other values of the collection; the cataloging and subject classification of individual photographs, photographs in series or in "browsing" groups, and portraits; the physical organization and storage of original or archival prints, negatives, and the records generated for them; and the preservation of archival copies, provision of a user file, and copy print reproduction. The impact of copyright laws on the copying of photographs is briefly discussed. A pilot project tested the validity of these guidelines at the Fenton Historical Society in Jamestown, New York.
