  • Understand the need for preservation metadata for long-term preservation of digital objects;

  • Understand the PREMIS Data Model and how it applies to management of digital objects;

  • Have knowledge of the semantic units in the PREMIS Data Dictionary and how they apply to different categories of digital assets;

  • Be aware of issues that an institution might encounter in its collection and management of preservation metadata; and

  • Highlight a number of use cases that will assist implementers in planning their own use of preservation metadata.


Who should attend? This tutorial will benefit individuals and institutions interested in implementing PREMIS metadata for the long-term management and preservation of their digital information.

What should you already know? Participants are expected to have some involvement in and knowledge of digital preservation and some familiarity with XML and METS.

Reappraising and Deaccessioning Archival Materials from Start to Finish #1416
Limited Capacity seats available

In this workshop you’ll learn how to initiate and carry out reappraisal and deaccessioning programs and projects step-by-step! Hear about basic concepts of reappraisal and deaccessioning, like collecting data and finding repositories to accept transferred collections. Delve into larger issues of determining ownership, considering choices, and making responsible decisions. Take the opportunity to assess what your repository needs to do before beginning a reappraisal and deaccessioning project or program. In the afternoon you’ll be looking at case studies provided by the instructors and participant-submitted situations to learn how to apply SAA’s Guidelines for Reappraisal and Deaccessioning to unique situations.

Upon completion of this workshop you’ll be able to:


  • Take steps to reappraise and deaccession materials in an ethical, responsible, and transparent manner;

  • Apply the Guidelines for Reappraisal and Deaccessioning to specific situations;

  • Explain to your administrators, superiors, and parent bodies the benefits of reappraisal and deaccessioning; and

  • Consider legal and ethical considerations when reappraising and deaccessioning collections.


Who should attend? Administrators, legal professionals, managers, practitioners, and records managers.

What should you already know? Participants with a good understanding of their own institution, including organizational structure, policies, and collections, will have an easier time completing the first activity and will find it more practical. Previous appraisal experience is useful, but not necessary.

Attendance is limited to 35.

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.

Forum: Memory and Power: How Diversifying the Archives Can Help Us Welcome the Future
Archives have long represented the privileged in society. The preservation of this exclusionary "past" continues to legitimize the dominance of those in society with power and access. But demographic trends demonstrate that the future of the United States will instead reflect a global diversity. This demands that we diversify the archives so that we represent and understand society more completely, rather than be haunted by silences. Two alternatives for community memory building through public engagement illustrate this: eBlackCU.net and CUwiki.net. This forum talk will elaborate on these projects and others and provide a framework for planning to launch new initiatives to diversify the archival record.(This forum sponsored by the SAA Diversity Committee and the Archivists and Archives of Color Roundtable.)

SESSION 202 - Archival Ethics: What Would You Do? How Would You Do It?
How do you respond when you’re thrust into ethical dilemmas of privacy and confidentiality, donor relations, conflicts of interest, or other ethical challenges? An important aspect of professional ethics is the ability to talk with colleagues and to share diverse ways of approaching these challenging situations. The session puts the participants and the panel on the spot--without actors, props, or hidden cameras--to discuss everyday ethical scenarios that reflect on how we react, why we react the way we do, and what we decide to do. The panel presents scenarios and facilitates "What-would-you-do?" opportunities with the audience. Attendees are invited to bring or submit anonymously to the panel of experts their own "What-would-you-do?" situations. Submissions may be sent to jgraham@library.ucla.edu no later than July 1, 2013.

SESSION 204 - By Default or Design: Public Records in Manuscript Repositories and Special Collections
Manuscript repositories and special collections have sometimes become repositories for public records. With the enactment of replevin legislation in a number of states and the recent recovery of high-profile public documents alienated from public custody, more attention has been focused on public records that reside outside of government repositories. This session examines how two historical societies and a manuscript repository have acquired public records and how those institutions handle the records in their collections. Among the issues discussed: Do they follow the public records statutes? How do they relate to and coordinate with government repositories? What issues do they face as the custodians of public records? Speakers also discuss whether manuscript repositories and special collections should retain public records and be exempt from replevin laws.

P01 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - The Albert B. Sabin Digitization Project: Balancing Privacy and Restrictions with Access
Archivists must balance ethical issues of privacy and access every day. The Henry R. Winkler Center developed a practical approach to balancing these issues, along with national security issues, during the course of the Albert B. Sabin digitization project. Because the collection contains both military correspondence and medical research, staff have worked with several different groups to achieve the best possible balance of access and privacy within the online collection.

The Colorado Fuel and Iron Archives began life as a collection of 20,000 cubic feet of records housed in five separate buildings abandoned on the grounds of a largely inactive steel mill in Pueblo, Colorado. Faced with this mountain of business records, the newly hired archivists of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Co. needed an appraisal strategy. A combination of literature review, consultation with industry and business archives specialists, and perseverance yielded a workable methodology that enabled them to reduce the collection to a more manageable size without sacrificing content.

P11 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - Strategies for Successful Communication between Non-Archival Library Management and Archives
All archivists are librarians, but not all librarians are archivists—and that is where the problem lies. Issues within an archive are often more complicated than outsiders realize, even if they are in the library sphere. When action is required, some archivists have limited authority to make critical decisions autonomously. Archivists must know how to communicate with library management to ensure that the archives remains a repository of accessible collections, and not a campus-wide storage closet.

P21 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - Hidden Collections and Digital Projects: A Holistic Approach to Processing Neglected Collections
Recognizing the growing research interest in documents that reveal the cultural and social life of students and faculty, the Special Collections and University Archives at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro identified a poorly housed and partially cataloged scrapbook collection for a digitization project. While seeking to impose intellectual control over this collection, the department also realized that this digitization project could be used to establish a collaborative and flexible prototype to streamlining and expediting the processing of hidden collections. This poster presentation documents the benefits of a cross-departmental approach to project management and discusses the practical steps of devising a work plan that encompasses the processing, rehousing, preserving, and digitizing of a collection. Gorman argues that by incorporating these varied tasks into one project, the process of making hidden collections more accessible and visible is effectively accelerated and managed.

SESSION 305 - Part of the Process: The When, Why, and How of Routine Digitization
Many repositories are grappling with when and how to incorporate digital image capture as a routine part of their work. They are exploring questions such as where in the processing lifecycle digitization should happen; whether physical arrangements must be set in stone prior to imaging; and how to incorporate digitization in a sustainable way. The panelists examine these fundamental issues and discuss experimentation with and full implementation of digitization programs.

SESSION 306 - Soar or Crash? Managing and Preserving Electronic Government Records in the 21st Century
Panelists explore two innovative approaches that have been adopted by government archives to meet the challenges of promoting and implementing best practices and tools for the management of electronic records, gaining "buy-in" from records creators, and collaborating with vested stakeholders to ensure success. The Federal Managing Government Records Directive and North Carolina's efforts to gain buy in and executive sponsorship for establishing digital preservation standards are models that could change the way government agencies manage records.

SESSION 309 - Streamlining Processing of Audiovisual Collections for Preservation and Access
Archivists who manage audiovisual collections process materials at the item level for practical reasons: items arrive insufficiently labeled, unidentified, or inaccessible for playback. As a result, the descriptive emphasis is on the physical object itself and on format and condition characteristics that address preservation concerns, often without contextualizing the object as part of a collection for access by researchers. Panelists address streamlining processing to balance the needs of both preservation and access.

Crowd-sourcing has been implemented creatively by many different organizations using a variety of tools to carry out projects that previously had been impossible. Because these projects are community-driven, it is important to look at ways in which to recruit volunteer workforces and to maintain those workforces across projects sponsored by the same institution. As institutions move forward with further community-driven projects, it is important to evaluate approaches that have been successful as well as those that are currently being employed to look to future possibilities.

Archivists must balance ethical issues of privacy and access every day. The Henry R. Winkler Center developed a practical approach to balancing these issues, along with national security issues, during the course of the Albert B. Sabin digitization project. Because the collection contains both military correspondence and medical research, staff have worked with several different groups to achieve the best possible balance of access and privacy within the online collection.

At the LSU Law Center, little attention had been paid to arranging or describing the library's archival collections, which contain a wealth of information on Louisiana's unique legal system and history. After receiving a research request from an overseas scholar, LSU's Foreign, Comparative, and International Law Librarian began to arrange and describe the collection. The presenter discusses the importance of this collection not only to local scholars, but to comparative legal scholarship around the world.

P03 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - Sixteen Tons: Appraising the Records of the Colorado Fuel & Iron Company
The Colorado Fuel and Iron Archives began life as a collection of 20,000 cubic feet of records housed in five separate buildings abandoned on the grounds of a largely inactive steel mill in Pueblo, Colorado. Faced with this mountain of business records, the newly hired archivists of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Co. needed an appraisal strategy. A combination of literature review, consultation with industry and business archives specialists, and perseverance yielded a workable methodology that enabled them to reduce the collection to a more manageable size without sacrificing content.

P11 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - Strategies for Successful Communication between Non-Archival Library Management and Archives
All archivists are librarians, but not all librarians are archivists—and that is where the problem lies. Issues within an archive are often more complicated than outsiders realize, even if they are in the library sphere. When action is required, some archivists have limited authority to make critical decisions autonomously. Archivists must know how to communicate with library management to ensure that the archives remains a repository of accessible collections, and not a campus-wide storage closet.

P21 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - Hidden Collections and Digital Projects: A Holistic Approach to Processing Neglected Collections
Recognizing the growing research interest in documents that reveal the cultural and social life of students and faculty, the Special Collections and University Archives at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro identified a poorly housed and partially cataloged scrapbook collection for a digitization project. While seeking to impose intellectual control over this collection, the department also realized that this digitization project could be used to establish a collaborative and flexible prototype to streamlining and expediting the processing of hidden collections. This poster presentation documents the benefits of a cross-departmental approach to project management and discusses the practical steps of devising a work plan that encompasses the processing, rehousing, preserving, and digitizing of a collection. Gorman argues that by incorporating these varied tasks into one project, the process of making hidden collections more accessible and visible is effectively accelerated and managed.
