Archivists working with university athletic departments, professional sports archives, and athletic apparel corporations discuss the challenges of processing, organizing, preserving, and providing access to athletic records and memorabilia. Topics include dealing with the media, determining donation "value," managing expectations of users and resource allocators, and leveraging popular interest in athletics to bring visibility to the work of the archives as a whole.
