Definition Edit

Archival processing is

[t]he arrangement, description, and housing of archival materials for storage and use by patrons.[1]

Overview Edit

"Archival processing Federal records at the National Archives and Records Administration also entails a review for public access. The review is necessary to remove certain information that would compromise national security, violate the privacy of a living person, or would violate a Federal statute. This information is then indexed so researchers know what has been removed."[2]
