Archives Cluster

The C19 Archives cluster brings together scholars, librarians, and archivists to study and advocate for the preservation of the manuscript, print, and digital materials on which our scholarship is based.


Fundamental questions concerning access and preservation have been complicated by the digital remediation of print and manuscript sources and the shifting financial support of university and independent libraries.  We are committed to collecting and making available information about general and specialist collections, including for-profit and publically available digital databases, and serving as a forum for scholars and library professionals to exchange insights and think critically about the material grounds of our research.
