Public Or Private? Reconsidering Ownership And Value Of State Legislators’ Papers, Brian Keough, Elizabeth A. Novara 2013 University at Albany, State University of New York

Public Or Private? Reconsidering Ownership And Value Of State Legislators’ Papers, Brian Keough, Elizabeth A. Novara

University Libraries Faculty Scholarship

Unlike congressional and presidential papers collections, which have a rich archival literature in support of their acquisition and management, archivists and researchers frequently overlook and undervalue state legislators’ papers. One reason for undervaluing state legislators’ papers is the lack of legal guidelines in most states for ownership of these political papers. This article presents the results of a broad survey of state laws and collecting policies within state archives regarding the collecting of state legislators’ papers. Overall, archivists, lawmakers, and the general public need to become more aware of the value of state legislators’ papers, pass laws that protect and ...

I received a total of 148 responses to the survey. Of the 148 responses, 100 respondents finished the survey. To follow up from the survey, I conducted ...

Opera Cd Project, Ilana A. Mesnard

Blogging the Library

The library has a significant amount of materials on-site. For pleasure or for simply completing assigned work, our library has the resources to help students and staff. The library continually has to keep updating its equipment and technical materials like CDs and IPADS. Otherwise, the technology would be outdated and less useful, if useful at all. [excerpt]

Browsing Room, Research 101 And Finals Study Break, Kelly M. Fullerton 2012 Gettysburg College

Browsing Room, Research 101 And Finals Study Break, Kelly M. Fullerton

Blogging the Library

Also, more exciting things have happened! I've completed more of the Research 101 guide, and I'm pretty close to finishing it. I have to say it has been a lot of fun to look at what information is the most useful when doing research, and the best way to phrase the ideas so that it is helpful for students. I think casual but informative is working pretty well. Also, images are a great bonus. Too much text and the reader gets bogged down and it is hard to focus on the options let alone absorb the material. My ...
