Re: Best Practice for Organizing Donations of Photocopied Originals

Brent Burgin

I very much concur. Perhaps I’m a bit nontraditional, but I have no problem with copies, provided the researcher gives proper credit to the host institution. Were there a disaster, would that document be gone forever? Few of us have the resources or staff, to scan all our collections, and I have no problem with a copy of some of our holdings existing elsewhere in another repository.
