To create a unique accession number, our current guidelines are as follows:

Three-letter collection code + four number year (e.g., 2016) + two number month (e.g., 02) + four numbers beginning with 0001 and moving up as new media are accessioned in the same collection

For example: 

UAC2016030001 is an item from the University Archives, received March 2016 as the first item accessioned during that month

GOV2016030001 is an item from Government Documents, received March 2016 as the first item accessioned during that month

UAC2016030015 is an item from the University Archives, received March 2016 as the 15th item accessioned within the University Archives collection during that month
