H-Net: Preserving and Improving Access to Specialized Electronic Mailing List Archives
Archivist Advisory Board
The Archivist Advisory Board will help assess the preservation and access practices developed for H-Net records and recommend any necessary archival modifications and improvements. The Board provides expertise through periodic review and advice to the H-Net archive research team.
Archivist Advisory Board activities include:
- Review the current practices for preservation and access and make recommendations for areas that may require modification;
- Evaluate current accessibility of records and make suggestions for improvements in preservation and access;
- Advise on current issues and challenges from the board members’ own experiences and/or in records from peers; and
- Assist this research program to focus on areas that have broadest potential benefit.
As the program develops, the advisory board will review the policy revisions, test the searching and sorting interfaces, and continue to make suggestions for broader impact and potential test beds for other applications of the technology.
