In Part 2, Kussmann and Prom introduce advanced processing strategies that are applicable to born-digital and hybrid (i.e., mixed analog and digital) records, with an emphasis on hands-on work. We’ll use a variety of software tools to establish descriptive control over digital archives, focusing on arrangement and description at the collection and series levels. Kussmann  demonstrates specific techniques, and you’ll practice them on a set of sample records and/or materials supplied by your repository. (See Monday, July 24, for Part 1.)
