As a reminder, here are our RULES OF ARCHIVING:
- Identify Early
- Identify Thoroughly
- Save the Original
- What to Keep
- Be Consistent
- Consider your Storage & Preservation Materials
- Be Persistent
Having an archive makes retrieving and sharing information much easier. It creates a history for your company, demonstrates the evolution of your work and contributes to the fabric of the community as a whole.
And we want to thank Arminda Thomas for sharing the American Theatre Archive Projects' archiving manual. It is a fantastic source.
