Glossary of Digital Archiving

Archivists identify, restore and preserve historical records of the government, groups and individuals, including manuscripts, letters, diaries, films, photographs, coins and maps. Archiving, like other disciplines, has its own specific terminology.

To learn more about this terminology, please refer to "A Glossary of Archival and Records Terminology" compiled by The Society of American Archivists.
