n.an acquisition added to an existing series or collectionColeman 1938, 203The library before this had possession of some archives; many small additions were received from time to time as storage rooms in the State House basement were occupied for office space or for current records.Evans and Gustafson 1975, 230Additions to collections are combined with already existing units.UWSAC 1978, 48Every University Archives should prepare annually a checklist of significant additions to its holdings and should make these available to the other Archives in the UW-System.Slaight 1983, 61Certainly before any agreement is complete and an instrument of transfer or deposit is signed, the usual discussions covering ownership and copyright, terms of access, kind of processing expected, and disposition of duplicates and other records not of enduring value should take place. In addition, there should be agreement on the provision for later additions to the collection, whether and under what conditions items from or portions of the records would be returned to the originating institution, and what is to happen to the records if the repository ceases to exist.Walle 1985, 123The document should identify any rights and duties of the depositor. In addition to the deposit and transfer of custody, the deposit agreement may also provide for periodic additions, a sharing of costs, a sharing of publication or copyright, a prerogative to withdraw the files, or other pertinent provisions.Bensman and Potts McDonald 1997, 61, fn. 3For those collections previously reported to NUCMC and subsequently entered into RUN, a new record was not created unless substantial changes or additions occurred to the collection.Hackbart-Dean and de Catanzaro 2002, 134Nevertheless, if each accrual is processed separately, there is usually insufficient staff to physically reorganize each addition, ultimately resulting in the request of multiple boxes.Hackbart-Dean and Morris 2003, 106There are four primary options available to archivists for making growing collections available to researchers: ¶ 1. Physically and intellectually integrate additions as they are made to existing collections; ¶ 2. Intellectually integrate additions to the existing collection’s finding aid, without physically integrating the additions in the same containers as the original collection; ¶ 3. Treat each addition as a separate collection with separate accession numbers, finding aids, and physical housings; ¶ 4. Add descriptions of the additions in appendices to the existing collection’s finding aid without physically integrating the additions into the original collection.Rush et al. 2008, 219Also, information about additions could prove confusing to users who had to wade through descriptions of numerous accruals.Danielson 2010, 48Accretion, accrual and increment usually refer to additions to existing collections.Stanford and Meyer 2011, 20Additions to the collection continue to accrue and include recent materials as well as books, articles, recordings, and photographs that, in some cases, predate all of these organizations.Thomas 2015, 15Also, additions of preservation or access derivative objects to an Archival Information Package in the repository would be through a reingest of the whole package or creation of an artificial collection.Douglas 2016, 35Their efforts can be read in many of the letters contained in the Aurelia Plath series and in the personal notes in the Ted Hughes series, but they can also be read into the development of the collection at Smith, which began with Hughes’s sale of Plath’s journals, letters, poetry, and novel manuscripts and which grew through the addition of letters and juvenilia donated by Aurelia Plath.Trask and Shull 2016, 5These few additions have been small and are either easily added into the appropriate series within the larger collection or result in the creation of a new series.
