ArchivesInfo: Why All Librarians Should Take an Introduction to Archives Class, by Melissa Mannon | The Information Professional |

Melissa Mannon, "Why all Librarians Should Take an Introduction to Archives Class".


This post furthers a discussion about the need for librarians and archivists to study the others' field.  In my last post, I presented the idea "Why All Archivists Should Take a Library Reference Class."

[...] if you are a librarian, explore what archives have to offer. Build a connection with your local historical society or take a class in archives management. Linking primary and secondary sources rounds out the world of information, opens doors to collaboration between librarians and archivists and provides a means toward better understanding of the value of both archives and libraries by new potential patrons and supporters.
