Researcher Access to Born-Digital Collections: an Exploratory Study (Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies)

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies: Researcher Access to Born-Digital Collections: an Exploratory Study. “While a small, but growing number of institutions offer access to born-digital collections, there is scant literature documenting researcher interaction with these materials. This paper addresses this gap through documenting and analyzing researcher interactions to portions of born-digital collections at New York University (NYU) Libraries, with the cooperation of NYU’s Fales Library and Special Collection and the Digital Library and Technology Solutions Department, as well as the National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) program.”
