About the Author

David W. Carmicheal is Director of the Pennsylvania State Archives and the former Director of the Georgia Department of Archives and History. Early in his career he established the Westchester County (New York) Archives and was Director of the Records and Archives Center for many years. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the Society of American Archivists and a past president of the Council of State Archivists. Mr. Carmicheal began developing workshops for small archives and avocational archivists in 1986. This publication grew out of those efforts.


David Carmicheal once again combines his years of professional experience with the most current archival practice. He has a knack for translating difficult concepts into clear action plans, often using practical examples to make his points. The Fourth Edition of Organizing Archival Records belongs on the bookshelf of every beginning archivist. -- Gregory S. Hunter, professor, Palmer School of Library and Information Science
Organizing Archival Records provides nuts and bolts of caring for historical records. The 4th edition of this useful volume includes a chapter on arranging digital records and creating Encoded Archival Description files. The book is filled with step-by-step instructions for caring for collections, multiple illustrations, and simple quizzes testing one's knowledge, and it is a must for people working with both small and large collections. -- Kaye Lanning Minchew, co-author of Managing Local Government Archives
