An accession inventory is a basic description of an archival collection (or a part thereof) for which a detailed finding aid has yet to be created. Additionally, no attempt at intellectual arrangement has been made. The depth of description varies depending on the format of the materials and the amount of pre-existing description when the materials were acquired. An accession inventory might also be labeled as such if it is a fully digital collection, in which the digital files have yet to be processed.
