Get rid of those ugly backlogs with help from SGA and SAA

Registration for the Spring workshop closes in 9 short days. There are some spots left but they are going quickly, so claim yours before it's too late.

SAA - Implementing More Product, Less Process
May 17, 2010, 9AM - 5PM
Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia

Backlogs don’t have to weigh as heavily as they do! Focus on implementing concrete strategies for increasing processing rates and reducing backlogs, as outlined in the Greene-Meissner article, “More Product, Less Process: Revamping Traditional Archival Processing,” and learn as you share information and experiences with fellow workshop participants. Topics include appraisal, arrangement, description, digitization, and preservation, as well as development of processing plans, policies, and benchmarks. This array of topics is addressed through lecture, case studies, and group discussion.
