Assistance, please: sources in archives and special collections literature?

I’ve got a project in the offing for which I need to conduct some comprehensive literature reviews. I think I’m familiar with the journals that cover archives, but I am less confident about the sources for special collections. I also, of course, may be forgetting something obvious. So I once again ask for your assistance. In addition to the list below, what other journals (or publications or conferences or online sources) should I be looking at? (This review will address only developments in the U.S., so although I’m not limiting myself to sources published in the U.S. I do want to focus on sources which will have authors from the U.S.)


  • The American Archivist
  • Archivaria
  • Journal of Archival Organization
  • Archival Science
  • Archival Issues
  • Archival Outlook
  • College and Research Libraries
  • College and Research Libraries News
  • RBM: A Journal of Rare Books, Manuscripts, and Cultural Heritage

Online Publications

Conferences (primarily looking for those for which presentation materials may be available online or for which proceedings are published):

  • SAA Annual Meeting
  • RBMS Preconference
  • ACA Annual Meetings
  • Museums and the Web (I’ve seen some presentations on archives topics there)

I know there must be others. Any suggestions?
