Archivists who work with congressional papers have been collaborating to improve management of the transfer and donation of digital congressional records. Using their experiences as a case study, they share lessons learned about working with each other, the donors and their staffs, and other stakeholders that are applicable to a wide range of archives. They offer perspectives from different stages of the records life cycle, explore how they intersect, and share goals for future improvements.
