Independent Colleges Archives and Institutional Records Network: A Feasibility Study. A Report to the Participating Colleges and to the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
McDonald, Joseph; Micikas, Lynda
This study explores the feasibility of a formal cooperative effort among the archives and institutional records management programs of small religious colleges in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. A systems approach is employed, in which the archives are linked to the process of creating, managing, and keeping an institution's records. The report begins by examining the literature of archives and records management. A field investigation of seven small religious colleges in the Philadelphia area is then described which involved surveys of archivists and college administrative and faculty departments. The findings of the investigation and recommendations for cooperative efforts conclude the report. Copies of the survey instruments are appended. (15 references) (EW)
