Approaches to managing business archives are not frequently discussed within the archival community, yet the experiences of business archivists are valuable to conversations about topics including extensible processing techniques, limited resource pressures, complex processing projects, and collaboration with broad user groups. Business archives also serve non-traditional users, work efficiently under persistently constrained budgets, and use metrics for common archival tasks in order to demonstrate the value (and existence) of archival labor. Panelists will examine the similarities and differences between the challenges academic and business archives face and how lessons learned working in business archives can be translated into more efficiently managing other types of archival collections.
