    Abstract: Records created about archival materials-including deeds of gift, collection-related correspondence, and other accession documentation-play an important role, particularly when it comes to providing access and maintaining partnerships with other recordkeepers. This case study will describe a project to review the accession documentation of all collections within Augusta University's Special Collections & Institutional Archives, and the collections of the local historical society, held on deposit with the department.


    JCAS is a peer-reviewed, open access journal sponsored by the New England Archivists, Yale University Library, and Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
