Between 2006 and 2009 the Smithsonian Institution Archives moved approximately 26,000 cubic feet of records into three new facilities, relying almost entirely on existing resources. The Archives used this opportunity to improve the physical condition and intellectual control of its collections. This poster presentation demonstrates the workflow created to minimally process and ensure the safe movement of collections being sent to remote storage as well as the logistics of physically moving archival holdings. Given at the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas, 2009, by Smithsonian Institution Archives archivists, Tammy Peters, Jennifer Wright, and Ginger Yowell.
