SESSION 203 - Marriage, Separation, Divorce: Managing Collections During Organizational Change

Archivists in institutions in the U.S. and Canada share best practices in managing complex entity relationships and collections governance during significant organizational changes.  Models to be discussed include growing or combining archives (due to mergers, acquisitions, or transfers between bodies) and splitting archives due to entity separations.  Case studies include an international corporate acquisition, an independent arts institution merging with a museum, and an archives shared with a divested entity.
