n.the practice of preparing archival resources for use with limited initial labor and the intention of further work based on appraisal or user demandSantamaria 2015, 23Creating a flexible structure for an iterative processing program requires thorough analysis, planning, and data collection. Iteration can take place in a number of ways, ranging from processing archivists evaluating assessment ratings, to “on-demand” processing in which archivists add more detailed description once a user inquires about a collection.Dundon et al. 2020, 9Iterative processing lays a foundation for future archival interventions, as they may be needed, which requires planning, flexibility, and creative compromises. In sum, the efficient processing techniques described in these guidelines empower archivists to make informed choices about their work so that they may surface more research materials to users.Kim and Irwin 2021, 367Another reason for not describing the Solar Decathlon collection more granularly was lack of staff time. However, choosing to describe the collection at the series level falls in line with UNLV SCA’s goal for achieving a baseline level of arrangement and description by making sure all collections are minimally processed upon accession with the possibility for more detailed, iterative processing at a later date. UNLV SCA staff may decide to revisit the Solar Decathlon collection and assess further processing needs, such as any additional appraisal, arrangement, and description.
