Outreach Begins at Home: Librarians in the Archive

Community Notes

What do technical services, collection development, digital library, instructional or reference librarians know about resources in special collections? How can we have conversations to share our passion for unique and rare materials and to explore how our collections and our methodologies can be of use to them and our joint patrons and donors?

We will develop pitches in breakout groups and discuss them as a whole; then break out again to discuss strategies around participant-supplied case studies for reaching colleagues (librarians) who may be terrified/bored/stumped by the idea of special collections; and wrap up with a larger group discussion of our findings.
