Description

Special collections have a rich history, yet they face a whirlwind of challenges — digital, financial and institutional. How can we leverage their strengths to build a more secure and accessible tomorrow?

Come and participate in building the future of special collections at a ground-breaking national colloquium! Organized by Kelvin Smith Library and presented in collaboration with River Campus Libraries at University of Rochester, Vanderbilt University and Washington University in St. Louis Libraries, the two-day event will feature some of the most distinguished voices in the field, including:

  • Opening Keynote Speaker, Sarah Thomas (Vice President, Harvard Library and Roy E. Larsen Librarian for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences)
  • Closing Keynote Speaker, Mark Dimunation (Chief of the Rare Book and Special Collections Division, Library of Congress)
  • Stephen Enniss (Director, Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin)
  • Alice Schreyer (Assistant University Librarian for Humanities, Social Sciences & Special Collections, and Curator of Rare Books, University of Chicago Library)
  • Jay Sattersfield (Special Collections Librarian, Dartmouth College)

The program will begin mid-day on Tuesday, October 21, and conclude at the end of the day on Wednesday, October 22. Throughout the colloquium, attendees will be encouraged to enrich the dialog through a variety of means, including Q&A and talk-back sessions during the moderated discussions, placing post-it notes with comments on a designated board, and electronically expanding the dialog via Twitter feeds and a conference blog. The thoughts of the attendees will be compiled and summarized during the colloquium.

This program should be of great interest to senior library administrators, special collections librarians, serious book collectors, scholars (including faculty and students), and rare book and manuscript booksellers and auctioneers.
