Library and publisher cataloging and metadata

Archives

The Donohue Group employs professional librarians with all types of expertise, including archives. Our offerings include:

Consultation: We can make recommendations on how to approach the arrangement, growth, accessibility, and safer environment and housing of your archival materials.

Surveys: Processing surveys give you an idea of what is required to make your archives collections ready for use by researchers as well as what resources will be required. We can not only develop these surveys for your archives, but find the professionals to conduct surveys and report the results.

Organization and Arrangement: Adding new or backlog collections to your archives might require time that your staff simply doesn’t have. Our archives experts can help organize and arrange these collections for you. With our help, your collections will be accessible faster.

Description: Our professional staff has experience using Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS). In order to get the most out of your archives, some description of the collection should exist. We can create MARC records and finding aids to describe your collection.
