Archiving Methodology. Volume II: Contractor's Guide.
Leinwand (C.M.) Associates, Inc., Newton, MA.
This section of the "Archiving Methodology" is concerned with the role of data collection contractors in the archiving process. Their role is discussed from three perspectives: (1) the nature of the relationship of the data collection contractor, the project officer, and the archivist; (2) the considerations contractors must make when preparing data for archiving; and (3) the mechanisms facilitating the transfer of information from the contractor to the archivist. This document discusses an overview of contractor requirements (project-and file-level documentation) and specific contractor requirements (Cross-Referenced Information Form and data collection process considerations).
