    what is an archive?What is an Archive?

    An archive is a repository for records of historical value. They are similar to libraries and museums, as all three institutions organize and provide access to information. However, they differ in that:

    Libraries focus on published information like books and periodicals

    Museums focus on artifacts, or physical objects

    Archives focus on unpublished original records
