archival +‎ -ly


archivally (not comparable)

  1. By archival means
    • 2007 March 30, Ashley Parker, “Racy Letters From Hemingway to Dietrich to Be Unsealed”, in New York Times[1]:
      The letters were given to the library’s Ernest Hemingway collection in 2003 by Ms. Riva, on the condition that they remain closed until now, giving the museum time to preserve them archivally.
  2. In archival terms
    • 2007 March 9, The New York Times, “Theater Listings”, in New York Times[2]:
      Otherwise, this archivally exact production, directed by Bob Avian, feels like a vintage car that has been taken out of the garage, polished up and sent on the road once again (2:00).
