Case Studies

New Case Study on Access Policies for Native American Archival Materials
Case 3: Access Policies for Native American Archival Materials in the National Anthropological Archives, Smithsonian Institution
 by Diana E. Marsh, Robert Leopold, Katherine Crowe, and Katherine S. Madison is the latest addition to SAA’s open access case studies series on Access Policies for Native American Archival Materials. This case examines the policies and practices of the National Anthropological Archives at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History over a fifty-year period. It describes a series of archival programs and projects that occurred before, during, and after the development of the Protocols for Native American Archival Materials in order to view changes in the archives’ access policies within a broader cultural and institutional milieu. The case study assesses the influence of the Protocols as well as some challenges to the adoption of several recommendations and makes several proposals for archival repositories with comparable collections and constituencies. The case studies series is sponsored by the Native American Archives Section.
