  • The concept of archival “sedimentation”: its meaning and use
           in the Italian context
    • Authors: María Mata Caravaca
      Pages: 113 - 124
      Abstract: This article addresses a concept that is part of the nature of archives, and represents a necessary process for the constitution of any fonds. In the Italian archival field, this concept is called sedimentazione, which literally translates as sedimentation. In the international context, the use of this term is uncommon, as sedimentation is not originally an archival term. However, the term is widely used in Italian archival literature and language. This article provides clarifications on the meaning of archival sedimentation and its use in the Italian context. The connotations of spontaneity and/or intentionality of the sedimentation process are analyzed, and a definition of archival sedimentation is proposed. Archives’ attributes, such as natural, spontaneous and organic, are put in relation to the sedimentation process, and considerations about their ambiguous meaning are made. Finally, reflections are presented on the present-day connotations that archival sedimentation holds.

  • Migrating memories: transdisciplinary pedagogical approaches to teaching
           about diasporic memory, identity and human rights in archival studies
    • Authors: Anne J. Gilliland; Hariz Halilovich
      Pages: 79 - 96
      Abstract: Despite a growing focus on human rights issues within the field of archival studies, education designed to prepare students to be practicing archivists, scholars and educators has rarely considered how best to address these considerations as they relate to the tens of millions of individuals and communities who have experienced or who are descendants of forced diaspora. This paper reflects on the genesis, development, implementation and emergent themes of an experimental transdisciplinary course, Migrating Memories: Diaspora, Archives and Human Rights, designed to address this educational gap in archival education. In addition to relevant scholarly work, the course integrated fiction, creative non-fiction and film in order to exercise issues of memory, documentation and archiving relating to forced diaspora. This enabled the subject to be approached in the spirit of research in contemporary cultural anthropology as well as archival studies that is addressing the human dimensions and dynamics of memory and identity, in particular those that are cultural, affective and generational.

  • Privacy as an archival problem and a solution
    • Authors: Pekka Henttonen
      Abstract: People feel that their privacy is violated when information about them is passed inappropriately from one context or social sphere to another. This makes records and archives management a focal point of privacy issues, because its goal is to transfer information from one context, place, and point in time to other contexts, places, and points in time. Society has a number of mechanisms (“strategies”) for protecting the privacy of people. The article examines five of them (purpose limitation, privacy self-management and right to be forgotten, destruction, anonymization, and information safe haven approach) and the limits they set to the contextual transfer of information. If the strategies are implemented in society without regard for archival needs, archives have difficulties in fulfilling their functions in society. Therefore, records professionals should make their point of view known when privacy issues are discussed. Records professionals also should be aware of the mutability of the category of personally identifiable information and the changing nature of privacy issues in the digital environment.

  • Investigating original order with cybernetics and community detection
    • Authors: K. S. Chandler
      Abstract: This article is an exploration into the principle of original order and begins with the presentation of a case study, which involved subjecting the records of a single department to a series of community detection algorithms. The results of the algorithms were visualized and presented to department staff members during qualitative interviews, who were asked to decide which community detection algorithm best represented their department. The case study results, along with ideas from the field of cybernetics, placed the work of Muller, Feith, and Fruin in a new light. More specifically, it became clear that the principle of original order and the principle respect des fonds crucially result in aggregates comprised of mutually relevant records. This mutual relevance is a necessary feature of an archival aggregate, as it makes it possible for researchers to corroborate pieces of data, which in turn enables a reconstruction of the past. Ultimately, this article delves into the various ways that record aggregates become mutually relevant, investigating physical original order, administration-based original order, and functional classification.

  • On or off the record? Detecting patterns of silence about death in
           Guatemala’s National Police Archive
    • Authors: Tamy Guberek; Margaret Hedstrom
      Abstract: This paper investigates how the production of police records was linked to the policies of repression and violence during Guatemala’s civil war. We provide empirical evidence from the Historical Archive of the Guatemalan National Police that the police used language, terminology and codes to record deaths in ways that produced silences about the level of violence during the height of repressive military rule. Using a dataset derived from a statistically valid sample of police records together with qualitative archival analysis, we find evidence of profound changes in the terminology used to record and report on deaths—changes that follow a pattern consistent with the policies of information control and concealment of the three different military regimes that ruled Guatemala between 1978 and 1985. We argue that researchers will need to consider the silences created through the selective use of terminology in documents when using archives to produce historical knowledge. Detecting and intercepting silence will be especially important as state records are increasingly sought in service of ongoing pursuits for truth and justice about past atrocities.

  • The personal versus the institutional voice in an open photographic
    • Authors: Karin Wagner
      Abstract: In an open photographic archive where both archival institutions and the general public can upload images and provide them with descriptions, a noted difference can be perceived between the institutional voice and the personal voice. Private persons’ written descriptions of their photographs tend to have a more subjective style than the neutral, objective style of descriptions written by institutional staff influenced by archival guidelines. Seven examples from the site Historypin will be analysed using semiotics, rhetoric and genre theory as theoretical approaches. Deixis is a key concept in the analyses. In order to discern the institutional voice, meta-genre documents like archival guidelines have been studied. Regarding the personal voice, it is shown how genres that evolved long before the web serve as patterns for the contributions to Historypin, and at the same time how these genres undergo a renewal in this context. The article concludes by suggesting ways the personal voice could be strengthened and that institutions might benefit from creating fictional stories emulating the personal voice.

  • Stories of impact: the role of narrative in understanding the value and
           impact of digital collections
    • Authors: Diana E. Marsh; Ricardo L. Punzalan; Robert Leopold; Brian Butler; Massimo Petrozzi
      Pages: 327 - 372
      Abstract: Cultural heritage institutions leverage digitization to fulfill their mission to preserve, represent, and provide access to collections under their care. Despite their common interest in documenting the progress of digitization and online access, the library, archives, and museums (LAM) sector lacks a conceptual framework for assessing and demonstrating the impact of digitized ethnographic collections. Reporting the findings of a yearlong interdisciplinary study, this article underscores the importance of storytelling in articulating the value and impact of digitized ethnographic collections held in cultural heritage institutions. We begin with an overview of the literature on the assessment and describe the methods we employed in our study. Next, we identify and discuss the different ways that stories and storytelling are strategically mobilized in conversations about the impact of digitization. We conclude with a discussion of the implications of our findings for cultural heritage practice and collection development.

  • Trusted by whom? TDRs, standards culture and the nature of trust
    • Authors: Greg Bak
      Pages: 373 - 402
      Abstract: The first part of this paper examines the notion of trust within the suite of standards that anchor the trustworthy digital repository (TDR) concept. The second part traces the short and confusing trajectory of the TDR project at Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and explores the extent to which the failure of LAC TDR should be understood in relation to organizational funding, operational decisions, TDR standards culture or other factors. In the conclusion I suggest that the notion of trust within TDR standards culture is itself evolving in a positive direction that emphasizes user perceptions of trust rather than seeking to establish objective evidence of trust.

  • Recordkeeping professionals’ understanding of and justification for
           functional classification: Finnish public sector organizational context
    • Authors: Saara Packalén; Pekka Henttonen
      Pages: 403 - 419
      Abstract: Today functional classification is the predominant approach to records organization. It is, however, apparent that the functional approach to records classification often involves methodological and conceptual confusion as well as usability issues. The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of how recordkeeping professionals perceive functional classification, what are the purposes the classification serves and how they justify this method in Finnish public sector organizations. The article presents the results of the study in which 22 recordkeeping professionals in three Finnish public sector organizations were interviewed. The data were analyzed with qualitative methods. The results show the integration of the functional approach in Finnish recordkeeping practices and records management tools. The results also describe various purposes served by functional classification in organizations. They illustrate various justifications for this method and the recordkeeping professionals’ lack of methodological alternatives.

  • Digital curation beyond the “wild frontier”: a pragmatic
    • Authors: Costis Dallas
      Pages: 421 - 457
      Abstract: This paper advocates the necessity of developing a pragmatic alternative to the dominant custodial theorization of digital curation as an “umbrella concept for digital preservation, data curation, electronic records, and digital asset management”. Starting from a historical account and an examination of prevalent definitions, it points to the current dependence of digital curation on a prescriptive approach rooted in its cognate field of digital preservation, aiming to serve the needs of professional stewardship. It demonstrates the disconnect of this theorization with the rich historical traditions of museum curatorship where the notion of curation originated, its inability to act as a framework for understanding the diversity and pervasiveness of contemporary digital curation practices “in the wild” (such as content curation, personal archiving, and pro-am digitization), and its dependence on a “wild frontier” ideology dissonant with contemporary critical cultural heritage scholarship. The alternative, pragmatic approach views digital curation as a “contact zone” practice, routinely performed by a broad range of actors including researchers, artists, users, and communities, on dynamically evolving objects, domain knowledge representations, and interactions, beyond the curation life cycle prescribed for custodial environments. On this basis, this study calls for a formal reconceptualization of digital curation, adequate knowledge representation of its objects, evidence-based research on curation practices, and establishment of curation-enabled digital infrastructures suitable for curation in the continuum. Reaching beyond a custodial view, this approach aims to establish digital curation as a field of intellectual inquiry relevant to emerging pervasive curation practices in the digital environment.

  • Is the archivist a “radical atheist” now? Deconstruction, its new wave
           , and archival activism
    • Authors: Richard J. Matthews
      Pages: 213 - 260
      Abstract: Hägglund’s “radical atheism”—innovative thinking within the philosophical current of “speculative materialism”—revitalizes deconstruction and provides an important basis to define parameters for the archivist’s role as activist for social justice. This paper argues postmodern archival theory gets deconstruction wrong by misreading Derrida’s “Archive fever” as a theory of “archontic power”; this misleads archivists on the call for justice. Properly understanding that justice is undecidable, radical atheism explodes the tension between postmodernists’ appreciation of all views and perspectives and their commitment to right unjust relations of power. This paper first advances the negative argument that “Archive fever” is not about power and injustice. It then advances the positive argument that “Archive fever” is Derrida’s effort to look at actual archives to resolve Freud’s problematic theorizing of a “death drive.” In a close and comprehensive reading of “Archive fever,” this paper explores the notion of “archive fever” as a death drive and suggests Derrida’s efforts are inconclusive. Viewed through the lens of radical atheism, the archive’s “traces”—the material of actual archives writ large in the manner of Derrida’s thinking about a universal archive—serve to mark the flow of time. Understanding the structure of the trace reveals the source of internal contradictions, discontinuities, and instabilities in the meaning of all things. It explains why justice is undecidable. In face of the unconditional condition of this undecidability, we as archivists and humans are compelled to make decisions and to act. Deconstruction politicizes our actions and evokes a responsibility that cannot be absolved.

  • House proud: an ethnography of the BC Gay and Lesbian Archives
    • Authors: Danielle Cooper
      Pages: 261 - 288
      Abstract: Located in the Vancouver apartment of gay liberation activist and retired professional librarian Ron Dutton, the BC Gay and Lesbian Archives continues to be a major repository of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) historical materials in British Columbia, Canada, after 40 years of activity. This paper draws on ethnographic fieldwork to examine the motivations behind, perceptions of and activities associated with maintaining the BC Gay and Lesbian Archives as a “semipublic” organization that provides archival services for the public in a private home. By creating a textured account of the BC Gay and Lesbian Archives as a home-based organization, this paper articulates an LGBT, community-based approach to archiving. The findings demonstrate that locating an archives in a private home involves a constant negotiation between issues of the public/private divide of what is considered accessible and inaccessible, sustainable and unsustainable, safe and unsafe. This article also articulates how home-based archiving more broadly challenges the divide between personal and institutional archives and contributes to scholarship pertaining to personal, autonomous, grassroots and social movement archives.

  • Jewish archives and archival documents: Israel and the Diaspora
    • Authors: Silvia Schenkolewski-Kroll
      Pages: 309 - 326
      Abstract: Throughout 2000 years of exile, Jews amassed documentation reflecting their creativity and organization wherever they lived. Communal archives dating since the Middle Ages have survived. In addition, documentation about Jews is found in archives of rulers, governments, and cities. Conditions changed in the twentieth century due to new developments: the rise of the Jewish national movement, leading to the establishment of the State of Israel, and the destruction of thousands of communities and their cultural possessions in the Holocaust perpetrated against European Jewry by the Nazis. The centrality of Eretz Israel and Israel in Zionist ideology led to the concept that it should be the locale for Jewish archives. Thus, for example, in 1933 the archives of the World Zionist Movement were transferred from Berlin to Jerusalem. The situation became more acute after WWII: If entire or partial archives of destroyed communities survived, to whom do they belong—the states in which they were created or the Jewish people? This dilemma also faces existing communities without archival consciousness. Should everything be concentrated in Israel? In recent years, there has been a change in the paradigm of Israel–Diaspora relations. In a global transnational world, with constantly developing technical means, archives can remain in the communities that created them, provided they are maintained and made available to the public in accordance with accepted archival practice.

  • Pioneering women archivists in England: Ethel Stokes (1870–1944),
           record agent
    • Authors: Elizabeth Shepherd
      Abstract: This paper explores the life of Miss Ethel Stokes who was significantly involved in several major historical, literary and archival enterprises in early twentieth-century England. She established the Records Preservation Section of the British Records Association, she edited historical records and wrote for publication in works of reference including local and British Record Society volumes, the Victoria County History of England and the Complete Peerage, and she established an independent and successful business as a record agent, Stokes and Cox. The article is the first in a planned series which will study the lives and professional contributions of pioneering women archivists in England. An explanation of the background to this work, a literature review and a justification of the need for this new field of study are articulated in Shepherd’s chapter, ‘Hidden voices in the archives: pioneering women archivists in early twentieth century England’ (Shepherd in Engaging with archives and records: histories and theories. Facet Publishing, London, 2016). In line with the collective biographical approach outlined there, this paper will consider Miss Stokes’s family and educational background, her friendships, charitable work and her professional activities and projects, seeking to set her into the context of her own times.

  • Identity and archives: return and expansion of the social value of
    • Authors: Huiling Feng
      Abstract: There are two main challenges in realizing the value of archives in issues relating to identity. One is the unique impact of archives on citizens’ identity in the process of social development and changes. The other is the professional identity of archivists in the changing landscape of archives. Collective memory is the link connecting archives and identity. The value of archives in identity is realized through the role archives play in building, reconstructing and strengthening collective memory. To ensure that archives can provide legitimate and adequate foundation in citizens’ identity, a sound archival system needs to be established to cover a broad spectrum of society, to maintain the evidential and knowledge value of archives, to ensure the rights of citizens in using archives and to give enough policy support to marginalized groups. As a case study, this paper analyzes the identity crisis faced by the massive “migrant workers” formed in modern China’s social transformation and the possibility of archives in providing support for resolving confusion about identity and improving social integration. Social transformation and technological advances have also led to new demands on archivists’ professional identity, and the need for archivists to be more integrated into society, to expand their functions and roles and to acquire new understanding of values and sense of belonging during this process.

  • Utilizing user studies in archival appraisal practice: feasibility, value,
           and benefits
    • Authors: Hea Lim Rhee
      Abstract: This study is the first to explore empirically the relationship between appraisal practice and user studies. It investigated the current utilization of user studies in U.S. state archives and records management programs and explored participants’ attitudes toward these practices. This study used all these findings to consider the potential relationship between appraisal practice and user studies. Data were collected by an online survey and in-person and phone interviews, and it was analyzed by SPSS software and NVivo8 software. Only seven programs utilized results of user studies in their appraisal practice, and then only irregularly and unsystematically. Nevertheless, this study identified reasons that the relationship between appraisal practice and user studies is likely to continue developing. This paper concludes by giving some recommendations for state appraisal staff members who want to utilize user studies in their appraisal practice.

  • Writing social history of socialist Yugoslavia: the archival perspective
    • Abstract: It was not until recently that we could talk about a noticeable trend in research focusing on the social components of the 45-year-long history of socialist Yugoslavia (1945–1991). Possible research topics might include the history of social relations, structures, labor, workers’ self-management, industrialization, social stratification, class conflict, housing, mass culture and consumption. In socialist Yugoslavia most of these topics inspired ongoing debates, especially in the fields of sociology and philosophy. Historians participated briefly in those debates during the 1980s, but as the country disintegrated in the brutal conflicts of the 1990s, institutionalized humanities developed a negative stance toward the recent socialist past. In the new millennium, with the revival of social history and the constant state of crisis in the existing system, a new generation of historians began to explore Yugoslav socialist society. This paper argues that if this research movement is to be placed on solid ground through the use of primary sources, the first task for archivists should be to identify these sources. Based on an analysis of records applying social history methodology as a structural approach to the broad spectrum of human experience and social processes, it identifies several major categories of records relating to government, local self-government, judiciary, economic enterprises, political organizations and the trade unions and attempts to determine their current state. It concludes with general observations on some possible solutions for preserving relevant records as well as for the change in the appraisal strategies.

  • The future of access to public records? Public–private partnerships in
           US state and territorial archives
    • Authors: Adam Kriesberg
      Abstract: This article examines the network of public archives and private sector organizations engaged in the work of digitizing historical records. Specifically, it focuses on the recent expansion of public–private partnerships involving US state and territorial archives and their effects on citizens’ access to digitized materials. Despite this expansion in the reach of partnerships, research investigating this phenomenon has not kept pace. Here, I present interview and documentary data gathered from government archivists and private sector employees from companies such as, FamilySearch, and ProQuest. The results explain the processes by which these relationships form and function as well as how they affect access to records. Of particular importance are the ways in which private companies’ priorities drive the selection of records for digitization in these partnerships and how a changing access paradigm, whereby users search for records on third-party platforms, threatens to alienate government archival records from their provenance. This project is the first comprehensive study of public–private partnerships involving state and territorial archives in the USA and serves as the basis for future work.

  • The body in the box: archiving the Egyptian mummy
    • Authors: Christina Riggs
      Abstract: Linking the archive in its literal sense to the metaphorical repercussions of ‘the archive’ in a conceptual sense opens new lines of inquiry into the processes employed in museums to catalogue and store their objects. Archaeology—which was influential in Freud’s theories of memory and Derrida’s ‘Freudian impression’, Archive Fever—invites particular consideration in this respect, especially through the collection and interpretation of ancient Egyptian human remains. Embedded in colonial and imperial discourses of race, the Egyptian mummy confronted the West with the uncanny survival of what it had conceived as its near-double. The fates of two Egyptian bodies, a mummy dissected in the 1820s and a skeleton excavated in the 1920s, exemplify the archiving of these archaeological objects, whose multiple traces speak to what Derrida characterized as the archive’s self-destructive drive, as its objects (and bodies) resist archival containment. This theoretical point encourages museums to intervene in and through their archives, for the creation of alternative histories and futures.
