Archivists Toolkit vs the backlog

March 1, 2007

I got off to a pretty good start with the accessioning using priority numbers.  I think that part is going to work well.  However, I found myself getting all involved with determining subject headings and researching if we had other folders the item could be included with.  I finally realized I wasn’t  “working the backlog” I was well into description.

By the end of the day I decided that for the first step the only fields I will fill  are accession number, accession date, extent number, resource type and title.  If I have other information readily available, I’ll add it, otherwise I’ll plow through. 🙂

What are your experiences with this?
