SESSION 105 - There Is No Going Back, Only Forward: Value-Added Processing in the Age of MPLP

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Streamlined arrangement and description practices have changed the way we think about special collections processing, helped reduce backlogs, and speeded delivery of finding aids to researchers. Although flexible processing practices can improve how we make collections discoverable and usable, there remain collections that deserve more intensive processing. Three archivists explain how their value-added, appropriate-level processing approaches serve users and discuss how they decide which collections deserve more processing and what that processing entails.
