What is the workplace of an Archivist like?
The places in which archives are stored are known as 'archival repositories' and vary a great deal. Archival repositories exist for universities, businesses, religious institutions, museums, historical societies, hospitals, and all levels of government. A few are well funded, however the majority of institutions prosper and fail with shifts in the economy as a whole. A large portion of archival work is done within an office setting. For larger institutions, an archivist works alongside other archivists, historians, and assistants. In many archival repositories there are only one or two employees which leads to much of the work being performed independently.
