Abstract: The records of nonprofit organizations constitute a valuable but endangered species of historical documentation. Organizations frequently lack the combination of resources, perceived need, and will necessary to operate their own archival programs. If such records are to be preserved, archivists will have to intervene, either to encourage the organization to establish its own archives, or to arrange a transfer to an appropriate collecting repository. Collaboration between the organization and the collecting repository challenges some existing conceptions about the nature of archives and offers opportunities for creative interaction.
