This forum will explore the challenges and opportunities of working with special collections including rare books, manuscripts, pictorial collections, and maps.
The forum will include an overview of formal and informal learning opportunities. It will also highlight the passion and real life experience of some of our most experienced special collections librarians.
This is your opportunity to explore an aspect of librarianship which specializes in the unique, rare, and historically significant holdings of a library: to collect, describe, preserve, interpret, exhibit and promote these collections.
