Measurement and Analysis of Processing Costs in Academic Archives

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The timely processing of new acquisitions is essential to the successful management of academic archives and manuscript collections. Greater control of these activities may be accomplished through the measurement and analysis of processing costs. This paper proposes two procedures for costs studies and describes the results of such studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It concludes with a description of processing efficiency measurements and suggestions for the application of study findings to program operations.
