NHPRC 'Small & Diverse Archival Organization Needs Assessment Project’ Summary Report
In Summer 2019, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) selected LYRASIS Consulants Tom Clareson and Leigh Grinstead to manage a research project to assess the needs of small and diverse archival repositories. The LYRASIS approach to the needs assessment was to work with the archival community on both an online survey project and a series of virtual focus groups. The report below provides information on both of those project components, and provides recommendations on both additional research opportunities and potential work to further support the small archives community.
