I am a History Graduate, my job was supposed to be checking records and keeping them in good shape in both paper and non paper. but everything is changed to electronic and digital for a long time. You just need to digitalize everything and store it. No need to have an Archivist. Save lots of money and when you need something you can use search engine.
