One of the most significant features of post-World War II archival development has been the tremendous increase in the number and variety of researchers. Archives users are no longer an elite clientele, the scholar involved with traditional areas of historical research--political, economic, and military history. Within the discipline of history itself, there are now a wide variety of researchers, working in many different areas, who avail themselves of the resources of archival institutions. Other scholars, including sociologists, economists, geographers and even scientists, are now using archival sources to support their research projects.
