Purpose: This study examines descriptive cataloging of archival materials related to the Iran- Iraq war (1980-1987) in Iranian archives and provides a model for improvement.
Method/Research Design: Metadata records of numerous archives were closely examined. Also, professional archivists were interviewed to collect data for analysis.
Findings: Archives studied followed their own ways in the description of records. Only a few followed ISAD rules. The National Archives and Astan Qods were the only two centers where the six elements of ISAD rules were implemented. Among military archives only two, namely The Institute for Documentation and The Center for Preservation of Relics and Values of the Holy Defense have applied standards of description and indexing.
