Title:University archives (Papers presented at the Allerton Park Institute November 1-4, 1964)
Contributor(s):Stevens, Rolland E.
Subject(s):Academic libraries
Abstract:Archival administration has been paid scant attention by librarians and by teachers of library science. In spite of its resemblance, at least in externals, to the management of libraries, it has been the historians who first appreciated the value of archives and who developed principles and methods for their administration. Recognition by librarians of this important kindred study is long overdue. There are signs that in our universities we are emerging from the stage in which the task of preserving and arranging the past records of the institutions is given to a semi-retired professor of Greek or medieval history. For its llth Allerton Park Institute, therefore, the faculty of the Graduate School of Library Science of the University of Illinois chose the topic, "University Archives."
