From original manuscripts and letters to sound recordings and birth certificates, archival information plays an increasingly important role in modern research. This definitive guide shows novice and experienced researchers how to find archival information, and it provides tips on how to use archival materials effectively and efficiently. Topics covered include government archives, science and technology collections, military archives, genealogical records, business and corporate archives, performing arts archives, and sports collections. This guide also provides an overview of the world of archives: archival terminology, how to contact archives, and archival etiquette.;Whether searching for a noted author's original manuscripts, trying to locate presidential papers, or tracking down a repository of oral histories, Archival Information is an indispensable reference work. Although libraries and the Internet have made finding information on a wide range of topics faster and easier, not all information - particularly from primary sources - is available at local library branches or online. Using archival information can be challenging. Materials are often located in many different places: public or academic libraries, government agencies, historical societies, or museums. They are usually kept in secured areas away from the public and cannot be browsed. This guide helps make archival research less difficult and overwhelming.
