This webinar will discuss using MPLP (More Product, Less Process), an approach that allows archivists to select a level of processing which best fits the collection being processed, and anticipated use.
In 2016 NARA adopted a Processing Policy and later that year the Office of Research Services launched a new processing manual to implement it for analog records. MPLP was a major influence throughout; and the policy and subsequent manual significantly reshaped how NARA approaches processing. Michael Moore, NARA Director of Affiliated Archives Program, will discuss how and why they chose this method, and what they hoped to accomplish.
The Wisconsin Historical Society has used the principles of MPLP to make collections quickly available to the public since the mid-1990s. In 2009, the WHS began preparing to move 20,000 cubic feet of public record material to a new building. Abbie Norderhaug, Assistant State Archivist, will discuss how the WHS accomplished this task using the principles of MPLP to ensure that each collection moved was described, cataloged, and had an EAD finding aid.
