Sample text

At the same time many mid-level academic archivists have not been allowed enough opportunity to gain administrative experience in their current roles. Without some kind of mentoring or grooming from supervisory archivists, most mid-level academic archivists are unable to rise to the new challenges that are only accessible by having the right kinds and amounts of professional experiences. As a ripple effect, without mid-level archivists moving up or moving on from their positions (which would most likely be reclassified and refilled as an entry-level position), there is a logjam for incoming archivists and an absence of new senior administrative archivists to lead programs.

The survey suggests that because continuing education is so important for archivists, national and regional groups should offer training opportunities in both core and specialized areas. Archivists must also look to other fields for training in areas that are intersecting their work. Technological training workshops including managing electronic records, and creating finding aids using standards such as Encoded Archival Description (EAD), Encoded Archival Context (EAC), and Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS), are in great demand.

Many programs collect off-campus material, such as historical collections related to the nearby town or community or prominent subjects that directly support their institution’s academic mission. This expansion has diversified the topics, viewpoints, and formats found in the collections of academic archives. By collecting a fuller range of resources, academic archives document a wider swath of campus life, provide researchers with a fuller picture of history, and support collection uniqueness in academic research libraries (Burckel, 2008).
