This diagram shows the process for acquiring time-based media works of art. The process is divided into three phases.

The circular structure of the stages in this diagram reflect the fact that they are not necessarily carried out in a linear order, and that the phases (pre-acquisition, accessioning and post-acquisition) may overlap. The text guidelines for each phase are however presented in chronological order, to clarify what each stage involves.
