Processing Born-Digital Manuscript Collections: A Case Study

Manuscripts are a key collecting area for many archives. An increasing number of manuscript donations are born-digital, meaning that repositories must establish protocols for materials in a variety of formats, originating from a broad range of platforms. This presentation will cover the accessioning, processing, and preservation workflows for a Google Drive manuscript collection at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. While the presentation will focus on the specific systems used at YIVO, I will discuss the process in broad terms so that anyone can get a sense of how to apply it to their own institution.

About the speaker:

Hallel Yadin is a distance M.L.I.S. student at the University of Missouri with an emphasis in archival studies. She is also completing the Society of American Archivists's Digital Archives Specialist certificate, thanks to a training grant from the Digital Preservation Outreach and Education Network. The funding was provided in the context of her position as an archivist at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research in New York City.
