Civil litigation is important in historical archiving, in that wecan understand archiving over time, the governing structure and ournational identity. However at times we are not able to use thempractically. The ultimate goal of preserving and maintaining the archives isto use them practically. The effective use of archives should be supportedby their systematic management and access to a high standard.
