About Archives Science
An archivist is a professional who assesses, collects, organizes, preserves, maintains control over, and provides access to information determined to have long-term value. The information maintained by an archivist can be any form of media (photographs, video or sound recordings, letters, documents, electronic records, etc.) Because of the varied nature of the job and organisations and work environment, archivists need to have a wide range of skills.
