Sharing the Wonder - one-day conference (UK)
Sharing the Wonder - a collaborative approach to promoting, preserving and sharing the content of special collections. A one day conference at Queens' College, Cambridge on 12 September 2011 - "The uniqueness and specialised appeal of our collections offers little protection from financial constraints. Many are under threat - of dispersal, of neglect and even disposal in favour of digitised copies - and this conference focuses on ways in which colleagues are sharing their expertise and knowledge to ensure their collections 'work', that is, that they continue to be relevant and available to meet the needs and interests of their varied audiences - be these scholars or the public at large"
