The presenter proposes a new way to understand the role of sustainability in the archival profession. Sustainability emerges from those archival institutions that successfully solve their day-to-day problems, not from those that passively consume fewer resources. Decision-makers engage in problem-solving that may result—often imperceptibly—in increasingly complex organizations and practices. To foster sustainability in archival institutions, we must understand how the growth in complexity operates and how to control it. This poster highlights examples of how complexity affects the sustainability of archival institutions.
