For many institutions, accessioning is a function that has been managed variably over time, leading to myriad challenges in managing archival collections. Retrospective accessioning remedies inconsistent past practice by holistically identifying and attending to gaps in accessioning work. This preprint, a chapter originally published in Archival Accessioning (Edited by Audra Eagle Yun), is designed to help you consider what an appropriate retrospective accessioning project might look like at your institution.
