CFP: Journal of Archival Organization – special issue on “Archives and Artifacts”

Archivists manage artifacts in a variety of situations – plaques and memorabilia found in personal papers; models, material samples, and mockups in architectural and industrial design collections; academic and business archives with significant artifactual holdings; or even hybrid archives-museum collections. This special issue will feature articles and case studies relating to the arrangement and description of artifacts in archives. We hope to encourage wider sharing of information between archivists who manage artifacts, and to spur dialogue that will hopefully lead to professional best practices.

We invite papers on any aspect of the archival organization of artifacts. Contributions might cover the following themes:

  • Impacts on processing planning and workflows
  • Integrating processing of artifacts with processing of manuscript material
  • Costs associated with arranging, describing, and storing artifacts
  • Minimum, added-value, and optimal description for artifacts
  • Artifact description and arrangement practices to maximize use/discovery by curators, researchers, and other users
  • Archival management systems and tools used to manage data about artifacts in an archival setting
  • Commonalities between the archives and museum profession in arrangement and description

We are particularly interested in exploring approaches to managing data about artifacts. Questions include: If extant archival systems do not meet our management needs for artifacts, how can we address these system limitations? What tools have archivists adopted or developed to manage data about artifacts? What can archivists learn from museum professionals about managing data about artifacts?  Can item-level processing of artifacts be usefully (and practically) integrated into the container- or folder-level processing usually applied to manuscript material, and if so, how?
