“As archivists document modern society and its institutions, they control the past," declared archivist Terry Cook. "They shape to a major degree what society can know about itself.” Gene Hyde is the Head of Special Collections and University Archives, located in Ramsey Library. We are lucky to have him teach a course this semester, "Collecting and Preserving the Cultural Record," which examines what archives and special collections are, and explores what archivists actually do.
