Image and audiovisual collections attract a wide variety of users with diverse interests. How do archivists choose one manner of arrangement to meet these varied research needs? Three archivists who have experimented with de-emphasizing physical arrangement from the processing workflow and a digital librarian who has been tasked with creating Web-based collection interfaces for digital archival materials discuss the methodologies, challenges, and benefits of implementing the processing-by-digitization approach through case studies of image and audiovisual collections.
