What goes where? It can be a monster of a problem when a donation arrives on your doorstep that has little or no connection to your community or institution. Additional problems arise when a collection that logically belongs in your repository is housed elsewhere. Academic and local government archivists share their stories of finding the proper home for--or bringing home--historical records, and discuss options for community collaborations.
