  • The Three-Character Classic of Archival Work: a brief overview of Chinese
           archival history and practice
    • Abstract: Abstract China is one of the world’s earliest civilisations with a written history extending back nearly five thousand years and an accompanying history of over three thousand six hundred years of archival work. The Three-Character Classic of Archival Work, a poem written in a traditional Chinese style, outlines this long history of the development of archival work in China. Through the presentation and analysis of an English translation of the newly revised version of this poem, the authors examine the archival history and practice of China from ancient times to the present day. In explanatory notes and a reflection examining the historical overview the poem provides, the authors consider the formation, change, transition, and development of Chinese archival traditions to demonstrate the multi-faceted impact on archival work today. The article establishes how, over time, some of these traditions have been incorporated into current practice, whereas others have been updated or rejected. Alongside this, the development of Chinese archival education over the past century is also detailed, to illustrate how this has been key to the professionalisation of archival work. The article concludes by arguing that, in the context of rapidly changing society and technology, the experience and tradition of the past will continue to provide a valuable reference point for the future development of archival work in China.

  • Rural archives in China over the past 40 years
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper reports the results of a qualitative study exploring the understudied history of China’s rural archives over the past 40 years and the forces that have driven different stages of their development. Applying a mixed-methods approach consisting of a literature review, website visits, document analysis and field research to examine both “administrative village” and “rural community” archives, the study developed a comprehensive understanding of the history, status and the future of China’s rural archives. It defines rural archives not from the traditional perspective of “villages” but rather from the perspective of being “rural.” It shows the landscape of China’s rural archives in the past 40 years and reveals the current conditions of rural archives in terms of resource construction, management workflow and utilization optimization. It analyzes the problems lying behind these achievements, critiquing the management system from the public’s point of view, not that of local governments. Finally, it proposes a network framework for addressing these problems and improving the situation of rural archives, as well as promoting the archiving and preservation of rural memory. The paper argues that the study thus provides a replicable model that might be used by archivists or researchers to study rural archives in other countries.

  • Participatory description: decolonizing descriptive methodologies in
    • Abstract: Abstract By looking at current examples of participatory archives, this paper hopes to introduce and encourage a discussion of participatory description. How does an originating community describe their records' How can the nuances of another language be allowed for in archival description' Archival description helps to create access points for users, but archivists must ask the question, access for whom' This paper seeks to examine the existing state of archival description and to make recommendations for areas in which decolonizing methodologies might be employed to better address the nuances of multicultural, community, and participatory archives. A literature review is provided in order to examine the current state of archival description. As a second step, decolonizing methodologies are discussed and examined in order to establish a method by which description might become more participatory. Finally, some examples of archives in which participatory endeavors have been undertaken are presented, in order to establish models from which other archives can draw inspiration.

  • Social media data archives in an API-driven world
    • Abstract: Abstract In this article, we explore the long-term preservation implications of application programming interfaces (APIs) which govern access to data extracted from social media platforms. We begin by introducing the preservation problems that arise when APIs are the primary way to extract data from platforms, and how tensions fit with existing models of archives and digital repository development. We then define a range of possible types of API users motivated to access social media data from platforms and consider how these users relate to principles of digital preservation. We discuss how platforms’ policies and terms of service govern the set of possibilities for access using these APIs and how the current access regime permits persistent problems for archivists who seek to provide access to collections of social media data. We conclude by surveying emerging models for access to social media data archives found in the USA, including community driven not-for-profit community archives, university research repositories, and early industry–academic partnerships with platforms. Given the important role these platforms occupy in capturing and reflecting our digital culture, we argue that archivists and memory workers should apply a platform perspective when confronting the rich problem space that social platforms and their APIs present for the possibilities of social media data archives, asserting their role as “developer stewards” in preserving culturally significant data from social media platforms.

  • Two archives of the Russian revolution
    • Abstract: Abstract The article examines the role of historical archives in the commemoration of the Russian revolution of 1917. In particular, it focuses on two specific case studies: the attempts to create the Archive of the Revolution in Petrograd in spring–summer 1917 and the competing archival project, which evolved in “Russia Abroad,” among the Russian emigrants in Prague, in 1923. The declared aim of both projects was to collect documents for future historians, but they were far from being politically neutral. All the participants in these archival projects had their own vision of the revolution; as a result, the very act of collecting documents actually instigated the formation of various, and sometimes contradictory, narratives of the revolutionary events.

  • Mine, yours, ours: archival custody from transaction to narrative
    • Abstract: Abstract This essay explores the archival principle of custody focusing on its evolution beyond post-custodialism. It argues that custody, while its outer trappings and shape may change, remains firmly rooted in the bedrock upon which archival theory and practice has been built. Considering many aspects of custody including stewardship and participatory custody, it introduces the concept of the 3Cs—custody, care and control—as a working model and advocates a new model going forward.

  • Usability evaluation of an open-source environmental monitoring data
           dashboard for archivists
    • Abstract: Abstract Cultural heritage archives engage in monitoring of environmental condition data, typically by employing “datalogger” devices and rudimentary data dashboard interfaces, to ensure collection preservation and avoid damaging environmental conditions, such as high temperature or humidity. Data dashboard interfaces are a popular means of efficiently monitoring complex, high-volume, and real-time data. While open-source software, in which the code may be modified as needed by individuals and/or communities, is widely used in the archives domain for collection management, the commercial environmental monitoring systems tend to be closed source and inflexible in use. The authors’ prior user-centered research with archivist practitioners has indicated many issues with the current commercial environmental monitoring systems and noted the potential for more flexible, open, and modern technology solutions. This research study explores the design and evaluation, through usability testing and heuristic evaluation, of an open-source data dashboard interface for archivists, with an emphasis on understanding the ability of current open-source tools in this realm to support archivists’ interface needs. Though the data dashboard interface was generally efficient and easy to use for archivists, there were several problems identified that require further development and evaluation, some of which may be more technically challenging than reasonable to expect from archivists. Several suggestions for the future directions this work may take are presented, which includes integration into existing popular open-sources systems currently developed by archivists.

  • Creating value of the past through negotiations in the present: balancing
           professional authority with influence of participants
    • Abstract: Abstract This article investigates how an online forum for a participatory archive project can offer a platform for controlled power-sharing between archivists and participants. Additionally, it explains how participants affect the processes, structures, and end usability of the information resource they are invited to create, with a focus on representability and the ethical responsibility of archivists. This study takes its point of departure in a participatory online transcription project: Begravelser 1861–1912. The influence of participants is studied through observation of the communication between archivists and transcribers in an online discussion forum. Theoretical concepts of maximalist and minimalist participation are used to contextualize levels of user influence. The study uses a framework inspired by Community-based participatory research (CBPR) to analyze the communication. The results show how participants used the forum to gain influence in the project, and how several elements of CBPR—shared influence, mutual development, and mutual use—were manifested in the forum. The conclusion is that using a CBPR approach in participatory projects can produce synergetic effects of increased knowledge and enhanced archival responsibility in conjunction with sustainable participatory engagement.

  • Towards a human-centred participatory approach to child social care
    • Abstract: Abstract In 2019, there were over 75,000 children and young people in out-of-home care in England and Wales. Recent estimates suggest that up to half a million British people were in state or voluntary care as children, around 1% of the adult population. While individual experiences vary enormously by time and place, care-experienced people share in common the intensive documentation of their lives by social workers, educators, health professionals and associated practitioners. A complex, fragmented legislative and regulatory framework governs the creation and use of these records at the national level. Under UK law, a ‘care file’ must be retained for at least 75 years, so that a substantial legacy of care data is held across the public, voluntary and private sectors. MIRRA: Memory—Identity—Rights in Records—Access, a participatory research project co-produced with care leavers, investigated recordkeeping practices in child social care from multiple perspectives. Interviews, focus groups and workshops with stakeholders identified critical failings in the creation, use, management and access to care records, which do not account for the needs and capabilities of multiple stakeholders. These failings have a direct impact on the well-being and health of care-experienced people throughout their lives. MIRRA researchers developed a human-centred participatory recordkeeping approach to child social care, which this article describes. The approach combines the participatory continuum model (Rolan in Arch Sci 17(3):195–225., 2017) and the capabilities approach to social work, rooting child social care recordkeeping in information rights principles. The article makes a contribution to the literature that discusses archival science within a human rights and ethics framework and reflects on trauma-informed practice for information professionals. It also provides guidance on practice improvements for child social care recording.

  • The regulation of archives and society’s memory: the case of Israel
    • Abstract: Abstract Legal and regulatory edicts that apply to archives focus on the value of the archival matter. The case study at the heart of this study discusses the rules pertaining to archives under Israeli law and analyzes them through a novel theoretical perspective that sees public depositories of information as media that partake in the creation and sustenance of society’s memory. This study broadens the discussion on archives in relation to memory by focusing on the elements of archive laws developed in Israel. Analyzing the policies behind the operation of archives we highlight the legal requirements for both public and private archives, the criteria by which “archival matter” is defined, the balances created between the right for freedom of information and other rights such as privacy, the rules regarding the elimination of archival material, and the obligations on choosing which records to keep, and we wonder how these legal requirements influence memory processes. Utilizing this memory-driven analysis, the study uncovers the mechanisms by which laws and regulations influence “social memory.” By bringing the discussion regarding the worlds of regulation and memory under the roof of archive regulation, we offer a novel understanding of memory processes, the power of regulation within these processes and the role of archives in it.

  • Paradoxes of curating colonial memory
    • Abstract: Abstract In the last decade, many initiatives were taken to digitize colonial archival legacies. In this article, we analyse Dutch policy and a number of Dutch initiatives in this field with the aim to find answers to our central question whether digitization of colonial archival legacies offers possibilities to decolonize these archives. The aspiration to decolonize colonial legacies seems to be a paradoxical statement since there is something innately colonial in the recordkeeping systems that cannot, and should not, be removed. But digitization of archives means creating new recordkeeping infrastructures, and these new infrastructures shape new interfaces between the documents which were created in the past and the users of today. We argue that decolonizing these archives can be based on a comprehensive understanding of the complexity of the variables which shape the new digital archival infrastructure. Inspired by the third-space perspective and the concept of (de)coloniality, we explore the possibilities to develop archival infrastructures that contribute to decolonizing colonial archival legacies in the sense of offering multivocality, multiple agency and multiple provenance. We conclude that what we call third-space infrastructural frameworks create promising opportunities to contribute to the decolonization of colonial archival legacies.

  • Epistemologies of the archive: toward a critique of archival reason
    • Abstract: Abstract This article explores epistemological bases for debates over the nature of archival research and practice, and argues that the lens of historical epistemology helps us best understand the critiques of the so-called “archival turn” as well as continued interest in archives among the public. Close reading of the rise of “scientific” history in the nineteenth century and modern archival practice, as articulated in early twentieth-century archival manuals, offers a new theorization of principles like provenance, respect des fonds, and custody, as well as historians’ “archive stories,” as part of an overarching though usually unspoken epistemology of archives rooted in intellectual project of the German philosopher Wilhelm Dilthey to create an epistemological foundation of the human sciences. Following this line of inquiry, it suggests that we can reconceptualize the rise of archival research, the development of the modern archival profession, and the critiques of these trends through the so-called “archival turn” and the post-custodial era of archival practice as shifts that were not just methodological in character but also epistemological. Ultimately, approaching the history of archives through the framework of epistemology helps us make sense of new critiques and continued interest in archives. Despite a growing chorus of acknowledgement of archives’ constructed nature, the instinct that documents provide access to the past with some kind of evidentiary value leads toward the value imbued into archives by professionals and the public alike and their continual contestation.

  • Of global reach yet of situated contexts: an examination of the implicit
           and explicit selection criteria that shape digital archives of historical
    • Abstract: Abstract A large literature addresses the processes, circumstances and motivations that have given rise to archives. These questions are increasingly being asked of digital archives, too. Here, we examine the complex interplay of institutional, intellectual, economic, technical, practical and social factors that have shaped decisions about the inclusion and exclusion of digitised newspapers in and from online archives. We do so by undertaking and analysing a series of semi-structured interviews conducted with public and private providers of major newspaper digitisation programmes. Our findings contribute to emerging understandings of factors that are rarely foregrounded or highlighted, yet fundamentally shape the depth and scope of digital cultural heritage archives and thus the questions that can be asked of them, now and in the future. Moreover, we draw attention to providers’ emphasis on meeting the needs of their end-users and how this is shaping the form and function of digital archives. The end user is not often emphasised in the wider literature on archival studies and we thus draw attention to the potential merit of this vector in future studies of digital archives.

  • Acknowledging the shadows
    • Abstract: Abstract This article is a response to Viviane Frings-Hessami’s ‘The flexibility of the records continuum model: a response to Michael Karabinos’ “in the shadow of the continuum”’ and continues the debate on my original paper. It is meant to further expand upon the shadows of the continuum, while also responding to Frings-Hessami with other records continuum model literature that refutes some of her critiques. By going through Frings-Hessami’s main arguments against my idea of shadows of the continuum, I point out the flaws in each, while also reiterating the original goal of the concept.

  • The implications of digital collection takedown requests on archival
    • Abstract: Abstract As data privacy legislation and protections are implemented and advocated for internationally, archivists must consider how these developments impact their work, particularly appraisal. Online digital collections make records more easily accessible to researchers and the general public. However, private and sensitive information may be disseminated through these collections inadvertently. In 2018, the European Union (EU) passed the General Data Protection Regulation, which includes right to be forgotten (RTBF) legislation. This enables EU citizens to request the redaction of their personal information online. In the wake of EU court rulings which demonstrate how the RTBF impacts what archives make accessible, and increasing public concerns regarding online privacy, archivists should be aware of the possibility of receiving increased digital collection takedown requests and what their legal liabilities may be. This article explores how takedown requests, as well as RTBF advocacy and criticism, are positioned with respect to appraisal theory. It also addresses how takedown requests affect appraisal praxis and how archivists can be better prepared to manage them.

  • Decolonizing recordkeeping and archival praxis in childhood out-of-home
           Care and indigenous archival collections
    • Abstract: Abstract This paper presents the aims and findings of two research projects—Rights in Records by Design and Indigenous Archiving and Cultural Safety—making particular reference to the ways in which Australia’s current child welfare systems and their recordkeeping and archival praxis have been indelibly shaped by colonization and its legacies, which persist into the twenty-first century. We posit that the classist, heteropatriarchal, sexist and racist colonial constructs of child welfare, the neglected and criminal child, and Indigeneity persist to this day and continue to be embodied in the form and content of records and archives, as well as in the principles and values embedded in recordkeeping and archival systems. The paper begins with discussion of framing concepts drawn from records continuum theory and critical theory, followed by an overview of both projects. We then explore in-depth findings of the Rights Charter, Historical Justice, and Educational components of Rights in Records by Design and Indigenous Archiving and Cultural Safety with particular attention to colonial values and negative constructs of childhood and Indigeneity, respectively, and their impacts from colonial times to the present. Importantly, we discuss the intersection of constructs of childhood and Indigeneity with colonial values and constructs embedded in recordkeeping and archiving systems. We note that the primary purpose of recordkeeping in colonial times was to provide critical infrastructure that enabled imperial control and exploitation. Consequently, we point to the need for childhood recordkeeping and archiving itself to be decolonized, to embody constructs of the child as having agency and rights, and, in turn, to play its part in decolonizing childhood. Finally, we discuss the contributions that each project is making to decolonizing recordkeeping and archiving theory and practice, and the potential for decolonized recordkeeping and archiving to play their part in decolonizing childhood for children in out-of-home Care and Indigenous Australian children caught up in the Indigenous child welfare system, respectively.
