Great article from UK including case studies from National Library of Wales and Wellcome Trust about grappling with old cataloguing paradigms in modern archives

  • Meanwhile online description to fonds or series level - created using standards created for the paper paradigm - ignore the new reality of facilitating access to born-digital material and digitised collections.
  • rchival principles are rooted in a particular time when Jenkinson’s defence of the archives (1966) was an inward looking process
  • Description and arrangement now needs to support two functions: recording context through implementing archival principles and enabling the discovery of archival materials through accessible cataloguing.
