- About the Authors
As a practitioner, administrator, teacher, theorist, and leader, Mark A. Greene (1959–2017) was one of the most influential archivists of his generation on US archival theory and practice. He helped shape the modern American archivist identity through the establishment of a core set of values for the profession.
In this exquisite collection of essays, 23 archivists from repositories across the profession examine the values that comprise the Core Values Statement of the Society of American Archivists. For each value, several archivists comment on what the value means to them and how it reflects and impacts archival work.
These essays clearly demonstrate how core values empower archivists’ interactions with resource providers, legislators, donors, patrons, and the public. For anyone who wishes to engage in thinking about what archivists do and why, Archival Values is essential reading.
