In the era of minimal processing, where does accessioning fit? Do you create catalog records, minimally compliant DACS finding aids, catablog posts, or something else? This lively lightning session offers the perspectives of representatives from a variety of institutions who share their "accessions confessions" on current practice for facilitating discovery of un- and minimally processed accessions and accretions to existing collections. Panelists and commentary set the stage for an exploration of best practices for accessioning.
