All Holdings Are Local: Archivists and Local Government Archives
James, Russell D.
Journal of Archival Organization, v2 n3 p75-82 2004
Archivists working in repositories that contain local government records play an integral role within the local community. Unlike their colleagues in state, regional, or national repositories, the local government archivist concentrates on a small geographic region and demonstrates knowledge of the politics, history, and socio-economics of the region. More importantly, they understand how municipal and county government operates. This article explores the unique features and problems associated with the identification, appraisal, and preservation of local government records.
