What Are Archives?

Not sure what an archive is? Harper College provides a wonderful description and explanation of what an archive is, and how to utilize its holdings.

Archives vs Libraries

"To answer the question, you first have to know the difference between an archives and a library (if getting a room full of archivists riled up is not enough and you want to actually drive them into an old fashioned-lather, say that archives are the same as libraries)... Archives, by their very nature, contain unique items. As such, one of an archivist's key duties is to safeguard and preserve them. That means mitigating the disaster caused by great grubby unwashed pawing through lovely, pristine records."  -- Via the Hairpin, "Ask and Archivist" May 7, 2012
