Archivists representing medical and scientific archives, data curators/scientists, and a historian of health sciences explore what constitutes scientific record(s) in the 21st century, how the nature of contemporary scientific research informs collection policies, and diverse approaches for acquiring these records. The panelists discuss how collaborative approaches allow archivists and their colleagues from allied professions to address challenges they face with appraising, acquiring, preserving, and providing access to records documenting scientific advances in an evolving environment.
