SESSION 410 - Rare Books in the Archives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Rare books increasingly are handled not only by librarians but by archivists working within special collections. Innovations in online access are exposing such collections to a wider audience and breaking down scholarly barriers. Panelists discuss a diverse range of rare book projects that highlight the intersections of these materials with digital systems and online access tools. Themes include digitized volumes, uses of social media, and integration of archival context.
