Performing Arts Archives Completes Work on Guthrie Theater Archives
The University of Minnesota Performing Arts Archives were the recipients of a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to arrange, preserve, and describe the records of the Guthrie Theater’s archives. This $100,000 grant allowed the University of Minnesota Performing Arts Archives to bring processed and unprocessed materials in the collection to current archival standards, and to increase access to the collection by creating a detailed online finding aid. The project also resulted in the creation of a forward-thinking records management plan, in collaboration with Guthrie staff, to address the preservation of born-digital records. A detailed finding aid is now available online.
