More Product, Less Process: Why It Matters to Archivists, Librarians, and Researchers

ALCTS webinar

Date: April 11, 2012
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
Description: This webinar will focus on the successful implementation of the "More Product, Less Process" (MPLP) approach to archival processing, how MPLP can leverage technical services resources to achieve better outcomes, and will also suggest how MPLP can be adapted as an approach to digitization and to cataloging materials that have traditionally been managed bibliographically. It offers an archival approach to general special collections problems.
Learning outcomes: Attendees will gain an appreciation for flexible and higher-efficiency archival arrangement and description practices that are extensible to library cataloging and special collections environments.

Audience: Technical service managers and people who arrange, describe, process, and digitize archival and bibliographic resources.

Presenter: Dennis Meissner is the Head of Collections Management at the Minnesota Historical Society, a Fellow of the Society of American Archivists, a current member of SAA's governing Council, and serves on SAA's Encoded Archival Context Working Group. In 2003, he and Mark Greene (American Heritage Center, University of Wyoming) wrote the influential article published in the American Archivist, "More Product, Less Process: Revamping Traditional Archival Processing." Mr. Meissner is a member of ALCTS.
