Archives in the Digital Age

Erway, Ricky

"I understand my role is to convey the scope of “digital archives,” so that we’re
all on the same page, talking about the entire range of what’s included in “digital
archives.” And first, I’d like to say a little something about archives in relation to special collections. Archives can refer to things like official records of a corporation or institution, personal papers, literary manuscripts, but they also contain photo
collections, recorded sound, clippings and, often, combinations of these things.
Special collections can refer to these same things, and sometimes archives units are actually part of special collections divisions."
