Back Issues of Provenance Now Online!

An announcement from Provenance editor Cheryl Oestreicher:
 
I'm very pleased to announce that all the back issues of Provenance are now online! http://digitalcommons.kennesaw.edu/provenance/all_issues.html.   

The successor to Georgia Archives started in 1983 and features articles by David B. Gracy II, Terry Abraham, Frank Boles, James Gregory Bradsher, Maynard Brichford, Richard Cox, Bruce W. Dearstyne, Pam Hackbart-Dean, Margaret Hedstrom, Peter B. Hirtle, Glen McAninch, James O'Toole, Mary Lynn Ritzenthaler, Kathleen Roe, Helen Willa Samuels, Margery N. Sly, Carl Van Ness, and many others.

Subjects of articles include academic archives, access, appraisal, archival administration, archival education, arrangement, automation, cataloging, collection development, congressional papers, description, electronic records, ethics, GLBT collections, government records, indexing, information management, military archives, Native Americans, oral history, photographs, preservation, presidential libraries, privacy, processing, records management, religious archives, use and users, user studies, volunteers, and women's archives and history. Plus some specific topics such as circus records, folklore collections, Grand Turk Island, internet gopher, and Project Jukebox.

Provenance is one of many journals that contributes to robust and ongoing discussions about the profession. Electronic access to the back issues will aid in education and research. Look for the back issues of Georgia Archive (1972-1982) to be available online soon. 

There are many people to thank that helped with this project: Teresa Brinati, Christine Wiseman, Traci Drummond, Amanda Pellerin, Lynette Stoudt, Marie Force, Faye Phillips, Susan Hoffius, Bill Hardesty, Marty Olliff, Cathy Miller, Heather Oswald, Georgia Historical Society, SGA Board members, Provenance Editorial Board. A special thanks to Jon Hansen at Kennesaw State University for creating, hosting, and uploading content. 

Submissions received by July 31 will be reviewed for that year's issue, though submissions are accepted anytime and can be submitted online:  http://digitalcommons.kennesaw.edu/provenance/policies.html

I look forward to continuing to provide a quality journal to enhance scholarship and education.
