A Girl’s Childhood

This chapter examines the issues involved in archiving the documents of the Yale Longitudinal Study (YLS). More specifically, it analyzes the documents' provenance and preservation (or neglect), together with the difficulties of offering access to a wider audience. It also underscores the importance for archivists to understand the context and history of the documents they are responsible for preserving and cataloguing. The discussion begins by focusing on how the YLS began, as well as what the study and the resulting documents were expected to provide. It then outlines the archivists' efforts to preserve the anonymity of the YLS's subjects while ensuring the accessibility of the documents.
