Acknowledging that current ways of conducting provenance research have left a vast number of prospective archives unexamined, Dr. Sarah Buchanan will articulate extensible provenance research methods in service to professional practice. Over a three-year investigation, this Early Career Development project will assess how provenance research is made publicly accessible and how college students learn experientially about provenance. Through detailed study of how archivists manage information during the archival acquisitions stage, the project will develop a feasible protocol for working professionals as it centers around diverse materials and user populations. The anticipated findings will generate continuing education materials that can be widely adopted by collection professionals, educators, and administrators.
