A keeper of archives or records.
An archivist manages, preserves, and makes accessible manuscripts and records of permanent value to an organization or project, including photographs, oversized materials, and audiovideo recordings. This is done through a process of appraisal, accessioning, cataloging, conducting a condition survey, appropriate rehousing, arranging and describing the collection, exhibition, providing access and use to researchers, and managing the intellectual property rights of an archival collection. Increasingly, archivists handle digitized materials, including electronic text, data, and photos. They enhance access and use of a collection by creating finding aids, descriptive guides that assist locating and using the collections. Archivists often have a M.A. in Library Science (hopefully with an emphasis in archives or manuscripts) or a discipline like history or anthropology. Not enough archivists working with archeological records have a M.A. in Archival Science.
