About this series
The Archivist's Library includes original, not previously published, theoretical, methodological and historical writings on the nature and characteristics of records/archival documents, on their creation, management and preservation, and on problems and issues affecting their use. This series may include monographs, theme anthologies or collections of writing of one author. It aims:
- To cultivate the production of works that systemise archival knowledge, address present issues in depth and investigate the historical roots of archival concepts, principles and practices.
- To explore and develop relationships between archival and other knowledge, such as law, history, public administration, information science, economics, etc.
- To enrich the archival literature in English with works of synthesis and breadth, which are lacking.
- To assemble thoughtful writings which are now dispersed and inaccessible.
- To build a body of core literature that will become the foundation of the library of every archivist.
