Archives are already arranged -- supposedly. That is to say, an arrangement was given them by the agency of origin while it built them up day after day, year after year, as a systematic record of its activities and as part of its operations. This arrangement the archivist is expected to respect and maintain. Arrangement is built into archives; it is one of the inherent characteristics of "archives," differentiating them from nonarchival material. Theoretically in the archives of an agency of government, or of any organization -- and therefore in the archival depository that has custody of such archives -- each document has its place, a natural place, so that its association and relation with all other documents produced or received by the creating agency remain clear.
Archival processing is the act of surveying, arranging, describing, and performing basic preservation activities on the recorded material of an individual, family, or organization after they are permanently transferred to an archive. A person engaging in this activity is known as an archival processor, archival technician, or archivist. Ideally, when an archives receives a collection of papers or a group of records, they will have been arranged by the originator the original person, persons, or organization that created or assembled the collection or records and boxed up for the move to the archives in such a way that this order has been preserved. However, collections and record groups are often semi-organized, and sometimes lack any discernible organization. Observing the organization of delivered materials, imposing organization where it is lacking, then describing the organized material are tasks covered by the terms "archival processing", "arrangement and description", "archival listing", or "cataloguing". The first step in archival processing is to survey the collection.
Throughout history, attempts were made to record culture by people who saw the importance of preserving the knowledge and documents of their own civilization. Preserving for posterity: that desire to chronicle the essence of collective creation, craftsmanship, and enterprise found in the daily struggle to survive on this planet. The degree and nature of this activity varied as did the civilizations, and ranged from simple prehistoric cave paintings to more sophisticated systems evidenced on ancient cuneiform tablets of the Sumerians. Many of those records were found in the ruins of the ancient Mycenaean palace at Pylos and they, like a voice from the past, transmitted a great deal of information about their culture.

We arrange and describe collections to both preserve materials for future use, and to make materials accessible to researchers. By documenting what is held within individual collections in our institution, we can responsibly manage our collections holistically and fulfill our responsibilities as stewards of these unique materials. Arrangement, when used broadly, is the process of organizing materials with respect to their provenance and original order, to protect their context and to achieve physical or intellectual control over the materials. Arrangement may or may not include physical arrangement, or sorting, and rehousing materials. Description is data crafted to identify and represent an archival resource or component thereof , created through a process of analyzing, organizing, and recording details about collection materials. Archival processing is a term that combines the activities of arrangement and description, often under the assumption that the two activities always occur together. However, in ACM we recognize that arrangement and description may occur in phases with long gaps of time between, and different activities, such as reformatting of audiovisual media and digitization, may present different arrangement and descriptive needs throughout stages of the collections management lifecycle.
Но мы с мисс Флетчер проводим диагностику особого рода. Это файл высочайшей сложности. Я должен был тебя предупредить, но не знал, что сегодня твое дежурство. Сотрудник лаборатории систем безопасности не стал выдавать дежурного. - Я поменялся сменой с новым сотрудником. Согласился подежурить в этот уик-энд. Глаза Стратмора сузились.
Беккер почти вслепую приближался к двери. - Подожди! - крикнул. - Подожди. Меган с силой толкнула стенку секции, но та не поддавалась. С ужасом девушка увидела, что сумка застряла в двери.
Сэр, - начал Беккер чуть громче, словно обращаясь к глуховатому человеку, - я хотел бы задать вам несколько вопросов. Старик посмотрел на него с явным недоумением.
