Abstract

One of my favorite Mark Twain quotes is: “Everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it.” The same might be said for the challenges that the archival profession faces. We are buffeted by the storms of limited resources, inadequate staffing, public misunderstanding, and administrative neglect. Our contributions to society and to our own institutions are often unrecognized or unappreciated, and yet we are expected to perform miracles for researchers and administrators in locating information and records at a moment’s notice.
