n.a measurement of the growth of an archives over a certain periodFranklin 1944, 19In the beginning it was noted that an archives building has the special characteristic that it must be so planned as to accommodate not only the records initially placed in it but an annual increment difficult to estimate.Gondos 1964, 477Here can be given the estimate in thousands of cubic feet of records storage space initially needed and the annual increment for a 10-, 20-, or 30-year period in the future; the number and size of maximum security vaults; and provisions to be made for supplies and stores.Popplestone and McPherson 1971, 17The shared space in the library was outgrown within 2 years, and in the fall of 1967, the university constructed a special concrete vault and supplied office space. These quarters provide ample clerical space but because the increments in accessions have been geometric rather than algebraic, practically all of the vault is filled. At the present time there is less than 50 feet of shelf space available.Plavchan 1976, 530There is currently approximately fifty million meters of film in the archives with an annual increment of one million meters.an acquisition added to an existing series or collectionLewinson 1957, 306He must consider carefully how the accessioning of the sample increments shall be spaced in time. If he accessions small increments at frequent intervals, he may needlessly scatter a series or a record group inconveniently around his stacks. If he spaces the increments too widely in time, he may inconvenience the agency of origin.Baker 1978, 294The final option for the storage of older records is to send them in regular increments to a home state library or archives.Peterson 1979, 65This means that the institution can look forward to acquiring increments of materials over a long period of time. Rather than write a new deed each time, it may be possible to include in the initial deed a provision saying that all subsequent donations will be made in accordance with the provisions of that deed. Then, at the transfer of each increment, the donor and the archives can sign a statement that the materials are transferred in accordance with that deed, and the archives can prepare a description of the material transferred and append to the deed both the statement and the description.Rapport 1985, 178One of my first assignments was to locate space under stairways, at the ends of dead-end aisles, or in other unaccountable places that would accommodate the increments of ten or fifteen boxes of selected case files that arrived regularly from the various NLRB regional offices. The shelf space at the end of the NLRB record group that had originally been left open for these increments had already been filled.Meissner 1990, 47It also enabled the society to buy the many materials needed to house the first huge increments of records.Deken 2003, 5In the case of the Richter papers, this has meant that they have been retired to the archives when they were no longer needed for current business and as file storage capacity in the Director’s office dictated. Accessioned in 68 separate increments over a period of 11 years, they document the entire range of his various activities and affiliations for the past 43 years.Danielson 2010, 48Accretion, accrual and increment usually refer to additions to existing collections.
