Contributed to OCLC report "Total Cost of Stewardship: Responsible Collection Building in Archives and Special Collections"
Developed by the OCLC Research Library Partnership’s (RLP) Collection Building and Operational Impacts Working Group, Total Cost of Stewardship is a framework that proposes a holistic approach to understanding the resources needed to responsibly acquire and steward archives and special collections. The Total Cost of Stewardship Framework responds to the ongoing challenge of descriptive backlogs in archives and special collections by connecting collection development decisions with stewardship responsibilities. Audra served on the Collection Building and Operational Impacts Working Group and worked on the Communication Tools suite.
