"Thirteen case studies address a variety of advocacy experiences and methods ... [one] chapter describes seven categories of advocacy 'lessons learned' from the case studies and suggests areas that archivists should give higher priority, particularly in finding and using external advocates. The book concludes with essays on advocacy and archival education, the use of new technologies to build support for archives, and advocacy at the federal level"--P. [4] of cover.
