Archival Issues is the journal of the Midwest Archives Conference, one of the largest regional professional archival organizations in the country.  Published twice annually, the peer-reviewed journal circulates throughout the United States and internationally. Submissions to the journal come from across North America, and are welcome from anywhere in the world.  Archival Issues is considered one of the premier journals of archival literature in the United States, and its scope extends well beyond the boundaries of the Midwest.

As the official archives for the Midwest Archives Conference, UW Milwaukee’s Archives Department has agreed to preserve the journal in the MINDS@UW institutional repository, providing free access to content older than two issues.  The collection begins with the first issue in 1976, known then as The Midwestern Archivist.  In 1992, the publication changed its name to Archival Issues.


Below are the five most recent articles added to the repository.  Use the links or search box on the left to discover more of the content.  You will find .pdfs of WHOLE ISSUES and INDIVIDUAL ARTICLES as well as SEPARATED FRONTMATTER and PUBLICATION REVIEWS.
