This excellent volume examines the relationship between archives and libraries and how archivists and librarians can work together. It surveys basic archival concepts, policies, and best practices for librarians and library directors, in addition to how archivists working in libraries can describe their work and advocate for archival needs. It details the differences and similarities between libraries and archives and how the relationship can be negotiated, covering mission, professional roots, identity, values, concepts, tasks, practices, and professional standards, as well as educating archivists and librarians; functions and responsibilities like collecting, donor relations, records management, appraisal, processing, preservation, reference, outreach, and establishing, planning, and managing new archives; and ethical, information literacy, digital access, and digital preservation issues.

"Archives in Libraries skillfully brings the differences between and challenges faced by archives and libraries into sharp relief, and will act as a useful handbook for librarians (and others) who are new to or about to approach managing an archive. I certainly would have found the book helpful and essential reading as a librarian beginning to work in and with archives."
— Tola Dabiri, Consultant, Archives and Records: The Journal of the Archives and Records Association (UK), 2016

"Librarians and archivists will find [this book] useful and insightful to inform how they can effectively communicate with each other in academic environments and public libraries."
— Meghan Bailey, University Archives and Special Collections at University of Massachusetts Boston, New England Archivists Newsletter, 2016
