This article offers a contemporary re-visioning of the gifts of archival work presented in Susan Wells' renowned "Claiming the Archive for Rhetoric and Composition" in light of digital archives. It advances three new gifts of digital archives: integration, customization, and accessibility. The article argues that teacher-scholars in rhetoric and composition must understand these gifts to design, use, teach, and manage digital archives now and in the future. Literacy in a networked, digital world will increasingly involve the ability to ethically, critically, and effectively create, navigate, evaluate, and use digital archives.
