Guthrie Theater Archives (1963-Present): The 21st Century Collection

The arrangement and description of 800 cubic feet of archival material documenting the history of the Guthrie Theater from 1963 to the present.

The University of Minnesota Libraries seeks $137,020 in NEH funding to support an 18-month project to arrange, preserve, and describe the records of the nationally-recognized Guthrie Theater (guthrietheater.org) to current archival standards. Additionally, we will actively work with the Guthrie Theater leadership and staff to review and revise the current records management plan in order to address institutional changes and to create a sustainable plan for future accruals that includes born digital records. The work of gaining adequate intellectual and physical control of the collection is the necessary first step in making these materials publicly available through digitization, which is being planned for 2016. In the course of arranging and describing the materials, we will identify and flag materials that can be digitized at this later stage for thematic inclusion in national digital aggregation initiatives, such as the Digital Public Library of America.
