Dictionary Working Group

The Dictionary Working Group launched the Dictionary of Archives Terminology in April, 2020. Based on A Glossary of Archival and Records Terminology (Richard Pearce-Moses, SAA 2005), DAT is a continual work-in-progress. The Dictionary Working Group adds new terms and updates existing terms every week. Click here to suggest a term.
