Direct access to a host of standards germane to archival practice is facilitated through SAA's Standards Portal . The portal is designed to educate the archives community about the value and role of standards, enhance the application of standards to archival practice, and facilitate successful partnerships with related information organizations with mutual concerns and interests. The portal includes SAA-approved standards, guidelines, and best practice documents. SAA's long-term goal is to establish a comprehensive clearinghouse that includes contextual information to assist archivists and allied professionals in moving these and other external standards from theory to practice.
