This poster details the archival strategy for the recently created archives at the Physical Planning, Design and Construction Department of the University of California, Merced, the newest campus of the University of California. A visual timeline and workflows chart illustrates the following: digitization of a large backlog of PPDC files, assessment and implementation of a digital assets management system, implementation of the Archivists Toolkit™ in creating accessions and finding aids for the collections, and the unique retention policy mandates in the construction and architectural industry. Highlights include the accessions and storage process for architectural design boards which are similar to multi-media museum objects. Ultimately this presentation provides a glimpse into the roles and responsibilities of an embedded archivist working among professional architects, planners, construction managers, and administrators, focusing on the archivists technology roles as well as more traditional archival roles.
