New Issue: Comma

The next issue of Comma (2018:1-2) is a bumper special issue focusing on the work and impact of  archivists and archives  in university and research institutes
(subscription, membership)

The seventeen articles (twelve in English and five in Spanish) originate from the 2018 ICA-SUV/Conferencia de Archiveros de las Universidades Españolas [Conference of Spanish University Archivists] conference,  “What value do historical records in University Archives add to Universities?” They are arranged here under four main themes :   the Identity of university archives, the Pace of  archives in the university community, the Management of archival records, and the Dissemination of the university archival heritage .

The special issue editors,  Miguel Ángel Jaramillo Guerreira and Caroline Brown, identify ideas about   “identity” as  the  common thread which runs  throughout  the issue. How archivists conceive their own identity, and that of the archives themselves,  is evident in articles which discuss  the changing roles of archive services   within the  institutions and their wider communities, or the roles which archivists themselves play, notably that of the archivist-activist.
