Re: Best Practice for Organizing Donations of Photocopied Originals

Brent Burgin

In regards to copies, I think it depends upon the needs of your users. We are a small Native American Studies Archive, and one large section of copied materials consists of Bureau of Indian Affairs Documents going back over 100 years. Were these copies not readily available, researchers would have to troll through widely scattered documents in Atlanta or Washington. These government documents comprise a heavily used area of our collections.
