Archivist was a position at the Bajoran Central Archives.

In 2375, Ranjen Solbor expressed the archivists' concerns to Kai Winn about her study of the so-called "dark texts". Winn told him to reassure them that "their Kai works for the good of Bajor." (DS9: "The Changing Face of Evil")

In the first draft script of "The Changing Face of Evil", Dukat speculated that, when the Restoration happened, the archivists would be judged, by the Pah-wraiths, as "unworthy." This line of dialogue also referred to the archivists as "librarians".
