The Truth about Original Order, or What to Do When Your Collection Arrives in Trash Cans


In this video, Laura Kells and Meg McAleer, both Processing Archivists at the Library of Congress, describe their workflow for processing manuscript collections, with special focus on how to arrange and describe chaotic collections in order to make them usable by researchers. This session was part of the 2015 ATALM off-site pre-conference workshops and tours held at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC on September 10, 2015.
