Transformative Issues for Special Collections, Web Conference

The Association of Research Libraries is hosting a Web conference on Transformative Issues for Special Collections in ARL Libraries, July 7, 2009, at 1:00 p.m. EDT. This event offers an interactive opportunity to discuss and provide feedback on the recently released report of ARL’s Special Collections Working Group, "Special Collections in ARL Libraries: A Discussion Report from the ARL Working Group on Special Collections." Alice Prochaska, chair of the working group, will moderate a short discussion by an expert panel drawn from leaders in the special collections community. Panelists will provide analysis of issues presented in the report as well as other provocative insights about critical issues relevant to the management and use of special collections in research, teaching, and learning. Participants will have the opportunity to ask the panelists questions and offer their own feedback. The discussion will inform planning for a forum ARL will hold along with the Coalition for Networked Information in Washington DC, October 15–16, 2009
