Historian as Archivist: History, Archives, and Outreach at Colorado State University
Meyer, Linda M.
Journal of Archival Organization, v9 n3-4 p226-236 2011
During the past half-century, an increasing number of American academic institutions established archives, and numerous academic archives owe their existence to efforts by dedicated historians to preserve and document their heritage. Although public interest in safeguarding heritage materials continues to grow, recent economic challenges confront twenty-first century academic archivists. The story of the origins of the Colorado State University Archives illustrates the influence of historians on the preservation of archival records and offers examples of archival outreach activities that support the institution's mission while building the repository. (Contains 32 notes.)
