Submission Agreement Form
Any program to accession, process, and provide access to electonic records should formalize treatment of deposited records in a submission agreement form. This page provides a link to a template form, which may be used as the basis for such an agreement form, to be used in conjunction with other documents such as deeds of gift. The form is based on a template used by the National Archives of Scotland and information supplied by the TAPER Project was also used when developing the form. While it is presented here as a Word document, most of the data to be supplied would ideally be managed in an database or Xfoms application, so that it can be stored permanently in reusable electronic format.
I am thankful to Susan Corrigall for permission to use the National Archives of Scotland form as a basis for this template.
