Abstract

As a legacy system, book-form recordkeeping plays an important role in documenting and preserving American colonial history. Through a close examination of four sample colonial collections in the Boston area, this study looks into the capacity of book form as a recording, keeping, organizing, and retrieving system in American recordkeeping history. The study highlights the importance of understanding the characteristics of recordkeeping forms and their historical transformations in managing modern archives.
