Artifacts at the National Archives: A Summary of Past Practices, Present Uses, and Prospective Arrangements.
Lash, Jeffrey N.
This paper presents a summary of the policies and practices that have governed the accessioning and use of artifacts in the National Archives chiefly over the last decade, and it offers recommendations for the prospective relocation and utilization of artifacts at Archives II. The report is organized around three major headings: a treatment of the theoretical understanding of artifacts management at the National Archives; a general categorization of the types of artifacts in the custody of the Office of the National Archives; and an examination of the storage considerations affecting these material objects, particularly with reference to those objects housed in Archives II. The National Archives' custodial units are identified throughout the report by the organizational symbols used before the extensive reorganization of October 1988. (MAB)
