P08 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - The Overhaul Project at Seton Hall University Archives: Gaining Control Over an Unruly Archive

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

The presenter describes the process and results of the Overhaul Project, which will gain physical and intellectual control over all accessioned archival holdings in the traditionally understaffed Seton Hall Archives. The project addresses scattered accession records, partially processed collections with mixed unprocessed and processed portions, incomplete location information, and the lack of discoverability.
