The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, on behalf of the Accessioning, Acquisitions, and Appraisal working group of the Society of American Archivists (SAA), will develop the first set of best practices for archival accessioning in the United States to help archives across the country strengthen and standardize their own accessioning practices. Working group members will collaborate, incorporate public feedback, and finalize a draft of best practices. The group also will host a daylong public event and a webinar to share the final product, answer questions, and provide space for discussion. The best practices developed will help archives professionals work more efficiently and ethically, and the project events will help formally establish a community of practice where these professionals can support and learn from each other.
