    Abstract:
    The Monty Hyams Archive stands as an important source of information history. This project seeks to organise and investigate the contents of the Archive while providing information on standards application to the care of the Archive. Through the research methodologies of literary warrant analysis, documentary analysis, and historical research, this dissertation proposed standards for future care of the archive, inspected the documents, and evaluated their contents and assigned descriptions. Interviews and historical research were used to expand on the information found in the documents. The descriptions generated were used to discern the major themes within the Archive and to develop an argument for The Monty Hyams as a crucial information science and patent information history resource. The project resulted in the description of the Archive’s contents, a proposed framework of standards with which to care for the Archive, and a confirmation of the argument that The Monty Hyams Archive exists as an important source of information history.
    Notes:
    The Monty Hyams Archive is available at City, University of London.
