Research Study: Archives in Libraries

Part of supporting scholarship is helping others with their research. When they arise, I’m going to start posting calls about surveys, studies, and the like that are designed with a research study in mind. I don’t know if/how these will be published, but supporting each other in these endeavors helps build a research and scholarship community.

Good afternoon everyone,

I am developing a research proposal focused on the administrative dynamics surrounding archives that exist organizationally in libraries and the potential effects this parent-child relationship has on users. In particular, I am interested in talking with organizations that have reorganized the placement or structure of the archives unit within a library in the last 2 years. If you work in such an organization and are interested in participating in this study, please contact me at atodddiaz@towson.edu

Thank you in advance!
