An Inter-Institutional Model for Stewardship (AIMS) White Paper

This white paper is the result of a 2-year project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to develop a methodology to manage archival collections with born-digital collections. During the project the University of Virginia Libraries, Stanford University Libraries, the University of Hull Library, and Yale University Library collaborated to hire digital archivists, test software for processing born-digital materials, and compare their experiences. This report laid the foundation for the evolving community of practice in born-digital archives.
