Aims & Scope

Provenance's primary focus concerns the theory and practice of the archival profession. Recent issues have included such topics as archival education; electronic records; automation; imaging; appraisal of university records; moving archives; management of audiovisual, photograph, oral history, and map materials; military archives; documentary editing; research use of archives; case studies in appraising congressional papers; ethics; and descriptive standards.

Provenance seeks articles, case studies, and review essays for its upcoming issues. First-time authors are especially encouraged to submit articles for consideration. For more information on submissions, please view the information for contributors.

Each year SGA awards the David B. Gracy, II Award, a $350 prize which recognizes a superior contribution to Provenance. Named for David B. Gracy II, founder and first editor of Georgia Archive, the award began in 1990 with volume VIII and is judged by the editorial board.
