MEDIA REVIEWS
Dearstyne gives the aspiring archivist/curator in 270 pages nearly all the information he or she will need to provide basic services for historical records. Such records are defined in this work so that it is applicable to both archival and personally generated materials (manuscripts)....Everything from preservation strategies for paper records through formulating program ideas for electronic records is covered here....Dearstyne's extensive personal experience in the field...along with his more recent position as a professor of archival studies...make him an ideal choice to do this work. In addition, his clear writing style and careful organization make the book all the more useful....The book is an ideal starting point for individuals new to the field. It not only gives the reader useful information but also inspiration on why and how records work can be a truly exciting career choice. -- David J. Olson, North Carolina Division of Archives and History * North Carolina Historical Review *
Dearstyne's destiny seems certain: his work will be the textbook for classes on managing historical records. He brings to the subject both administrative and teaching experience and conveys his enthusiasm for the field. Seasoned genealogists will concur with his statement, 'Using historical records leads to excitement and discovery.' -- Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer, MLS * National Genealogical Society Quarterly *
A useful handbook for any organization concerned with historical records, this book describes both the current philosophies of records management and the nuts and bolts of storing, organizing, and making records available to the public. * Utah Historical Quarterly *
