Featuring an overview of a recent retroactive accessioning initiative at the University of California, Santa Cruz, this poster empowers archivists to expand access to holdings by framing the work of managing unaccessioned material in an extensible processing context. Countering the narrative of "hidden collections" and "beastly" backlogs, this poster invites attendees to instead consider the valuable learning opportunities afforded by such labor.
