                               Accessioning and Cataloging (Policy)

Accessioning is the formal process used to accept a collection item or group of items and their 
contextual data legally into the permanent collections of the Oglala Lakota College Archives and 
Tribal Repository and to document the addition of the item(s) into the collection. An accession 
may refer to one object or several objects. All permanent collection objects acquired by the OLC 
Archives and Tribal Repository will be accessioned and assigned a unique number, referred to as 
the accession number.

Cataloging refers to the process of recording all primary information about the material 
accessioned into the collections. The catalog may reflect restricted access on certain items as 
indicated in Machine-Readable Catalog (MARC) Record.
