The purpose of this course is for students to gain knowledge and skills in diverse areas of archives administration. Agencies of most relevance to the course are archives, special collections, records centers, and preservation departments. Through engagements at sites, students will be able to experience the daily work of administration in these types of agencies. The internship portion of the course is an intensive practical engagement experience. Through the weekly class meetings, students will examine issues with more than thirty senior administrators in archives and closely related institutions with unique holdings of evidence and historical value. Class meetings will also afford students the opportunity to compare their work experiences.
