Still today, reading rooms play an important role in the researcher and archivist relationship. They represent the place wherein researchers conduct their studies. However, in the past couple decades technology has been and continues to allow more research take place outside of these walls. This thesis examines how digitisation and born digital content impact the researcher-archivist relationship. To accomplish this it takes a brief look into the history of archives, the history of digitisation, and couples that with commentary from archivists in the Los Angeles area sharing their thoughts in regards to digitisation, born digital content, and how they impact archives.
