Glossary Term Archival Collection
- Glossary Term
- Alternative Names
An Archival Collection is a set of records which have been gathered over time for a particular purpose. For example, they could be a range of different types of records that document the history of an organisation.
An Archival Collection may consist of files created by an individual, organisation or government including diaries, letters, photographs, sound recording, moving images, objects and emails. In the Find & Connect web resource we aim to document all relevant Archival Collections, including those of non-government organisations. These descriptions can be developed and enriched by the organisations themselves over time as more information about them becomes available.
An Archival Collection will often include smaller groupings of records called Archival Series.
