Using minimal arrangement and description techniques, the University of Wyoming's American Heritage Center provides in-house access to the majority of its born-digital collections. The speakers describe how collaboration among reference, processing, and digital archivists facilitates this access. Additionally, they share how, through in-person discussions and surveys, they are gaining insight into researchers' experiences interacting with and deriving usefulness from minimally processed electronic records.
