  • Sign up for Archival Studies!

    Archives play an important role in society. As repositories of a culture's unique documents, records and other materials, archives serve as tools for social accountability, the preservation and dissemination of historical memory, and the understanding of cultural, social and political forces in an increasingly digital and networked world.

    LIS 411, Introduction to Archives, provides an introduction to the profession of archival studies. In addition to the history, development, and nature of work in the profession, the basics of collections management and development, intellectual control, preservation, conservation, and technological applications will be presented.

    From artist's website:

    "Originally from Belfast, north Ireland, currently living in the USA, I believe in the power of the story – the magic of words- the glamor (the spell) they cast – and in telling we ‘listen’ and in ‘listening’ we take ‘action’ and encourage others to ‘take action’ – the ancient Irish myths spoke of words that make us fall in love…words that make us go to war…it is our ‘word’ that we stand by – our wise ones were our poets, our storytellers…it is in all of us to hear a ‘good’ story…that suspends time, encourages us to see a way forward, accept what we cannot change and have hope even when darkness shrouds us…"

    Maxine Lennon
