Dealing with database forms, filingcabinets and Resource Description Frameworks, archivists need to prepare objects before they can enter the archive. This talk knits together snapshots of a wide array of archival work, zooming in on the specialist tools that support such a process of fitting, the serial micro-decisions which ultimately define any collection.
