Title: Appraisal and processing
Author(s): Brichford, Maynard
Subject(s): Archives Appraisal
Abstract: How records are appraised and processed in the University Archives at Illinois will be the subject of this discussion. At the University of Illinois, the University Archives is located in the Library. Wherever the archivist may be located organizationally, he should be out of his office two-thirds of the time. While processing must be done in the Archives, the archivist should define and standardize processing procedures so that he may spend his time in locating the historical documentation relating to the activities of the university's staff and students. Effective appraisal must be done in offices, storerooms, stockrooms, and basements. Every time records are moved the chances of disarrangement and loss increase.
