In archives, an assemblage of personal and family documents, sometimes including correspondence, but distinct from formal records. Personal papers are often donated to a library by the author, or after death by the author's family. In the United States, the recent trend has been for presidential papers to be archived in a special presidential library located in the president's home town.
