Web-enabling Archive Digital Content
Archivists are focused on the content of our collections on a very fundamental level—they actually get to touch and feel the physical objects in our collections (with gloves as appropriate of course!). They are trained on organization, appraisal, description, conservation, recovery, and storage, and they provide reference support, answering questions for those doing research within the Archives’ collections. Whether the items our archivists work with are physical documents, or “born digital” objects, such as word processing documents or digital photographs, the same issues come up. The only difference is how these items are stored and handled.
