The public increase of interest in the past has not necessarily brought with it a greater understanding about how archives are formed. To this end, this book takes a serious look at archival repositories and collections, suggesting that archives do not just happen, but are consciously shaped (and sometimes distorted) by archivists, the creators of records, and other individuals and institutions. In this series of essays, I offer archivists rare insight into the fundamentals of appraisal, and historians and other users of archives the opportunity to appreciate the collections they all too often take for granted.
