You and I Remember Special Collections Very Differently…


Black Widow reminds you that New Directions for Special Collections is now available for your reading and arguing pleasure!

We tried to put together a conversation about what special collections looks like in the “real world,” today, in academia as it is now. It’s not the apocalypse, but change is already here. How do you want to handle it? Non-ARL libraries. Unendowed positions. Shrinking budgets. Reorganization as positions are lost.

We may not have all the answers, but we sure have a lot of suggestions, and some hard-won experience to draw upon.
