Applying ʺMore Product, Less Processʺ to Digital Collections

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

In the years since Meissner and Greene published their seminal article, ʺMore Product, Less Processʺ (MPLP) has become widely used for archival processing.  It is not, however, used as frequently to create digital collections. For a digitization project to make the papers of past university presidents available online, the St. Catherine University Archives decided to apply MPLP principles. Using our project as a case study, attendees at this session will learn approaches for choosing between item-level and folder-level presentation and description when digitizing archival documents.. We will cover considerations including: choosing when to highlight single items, providing context for documents online, and being strategic when creating metadata.
