|Scope and content
||"Archives in Libraries : What Librarians and Archivists Need to Know to Work Together provides an overview of basic archival concepts, policies, and best practices for librarians and library directors, while also suggesting ways in which archivists working in libraries can describe their work and effectively advocate for archival needs. Along the way, it highlights and analyzes the differences and the similarities between libraries and archives with the goal of promoting understanding and cooperation between these two complementary professions. The overall aim is to narrow the divide and build shared understandings between archivists, librarians, and library directors while helping archivists working within libraries to better negotiate their relationships with the institution and with their library colleagues"--Provided by publisher.
