Keeping the Collections Care in Mass Production

Quality Assurance is one piece of a long workflow for managing mass processing of materials in libraries. Whether the review for quality is in digital images, treatment, or accuracy in cataloguing every step of the process from beginning to end must have accuracy or issues and problems will ensue. This presentation will present the checks and balances of a number of processes that move materials from entry to finished product and the quality assurance steps to assure that all steps are completed and that all possible accuracy is obtained for each item within the workflow stream. The commonalities for assuring the best process whether for binding, mass deacidification, reformatting, or treatment are the focus of this paper. Cost effective means to do this processing will be the theme that brings all of these varied preservation actions together for the efficiency of processing.
