Project Documentation

The many guidelines, procedures, and forms created for the Iraqi Jewish Archive Preservation Project are shared on this web site for organizations and individuals who may find them of interest. These guidelines are not comprehensive and occasionally had to be tailored for particular items as work progressed, due to the diversity of the material. The guidelines reflect protocols in use at the National Archives and Records Administration and are in no way meant to provide an inclusive set of guidelines for similar projects. Custodians of other initiatives in preservation and imaging will want to create unique protocols that reflect the particular needs and expectations of those projects.

The following guidelines relating to cataloging were written specifically for the Iraqi Jewish Archive Preservation Project.

3.1 Cataloging Procedures
3.2 Cataloging Quality Control
