Why Archivists Should Be Leaders in Scholarly Communication
Sauer, Anne
Journal of Archival Organization, v7 n1-2 p51-57 2009
Archivists are challenged by many competing demands on their time. The rise of institutional repositories, often located in libraries rather than archives, and the concurrent increase in attention to the changes in scholarly communication may be perceived by archivists as being a demand that is too far from the archives' core mission to warrant attention. This article argues that archivists have much to gain from involvement in--and leadership of--institutional repositories and scholarly communication work at their institutions. (Contains 10 notes.)
