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”. Meissner will provide an overview of MPLP while stressing key messages that are often overlooked, review case studies illustrating implementation in several repositories, and facilitate group exercises that focus on applying MPLP tactics to real-world situations suggested by course attendees. Finally, the course will explore strategies for integrating MPLP into a repository’s administrative regimen.

Pre-conference Course fees are in addition to conference fees. See the conference registration form for more information.
