Just as no two repositories are the same, neither are moves. Archives on the Move addresses the unique and creative problem-solving necessitated by a move, highlighting the level of preparation, attention to detail, and quick thinking that 21st-century Archivists need to carry out a successful move. With examples from a variety of repositories, the session covers the planning, implementation, complications, risks, and rewards of collection moves and offers valuable insight into the moving process.
