Mark Greene and Dennis Meissner’s landmark “More Product, Less Process” method (MPLP) applies the least number of necessary processing steps when readying an unprocessed collection for use by researchers. If the number of steps for arrangement, preservation, and description are reduced, the application will naturally reduce the amount of processing time. Using their "middle way" of ensuring that at least half of the processing steps were done “adequately” rather than traditionally, Whitworth Archives was able to process a significant number of collections for preservation and use.
