Undue Diligence?

Hirtle, Peter B.

"My purpose today is to suggest to you why I think that archivists have by and
large failed to use new digital technologies to make the riches in their holdings
more widely accessible. Money, of course, has a lot to do with it. The funding for
massive archival digitization projects has just not been available. But there has
also been a reluctance on the part of archivists to pursue the small amount of
funding that is available because of our professional practices."
