Museum Archivist CV Template

The responsibility for authenticating and maintaining the museum’s historical and cultural documents belong to the Museum Archivist.  That leaves the Curator to concentrate on non-documentary artifacts.  Archivists often specialize in narrow fields such as scientific and medical manuscripts, war treatises and political documents or original manuscripts of literary giants as well as sketches of famous artists. They also concern themselves with letters and correspondences of famous people over the centuries.
