I recently stumbled upon this article on More Product, Less Process. The author brings up alot of great points on both the MPLP process and the current dependence on interns in archives. I personally found the point of the lost knowledge of collections when those interns leave noteworthy. It seems both parts of this system could afford some changes.
Also the Students and New Archives Professionals Roundtable or (SNAP) has submitted its proposal and is looking for signatures for its petition. I for one has signed it.
They are both worth a read.
