Your Library’s Treasures: Building, Processing and Promoting Special Collections ($50 per person)
An on-site workshop that examines the various aspects of a Special Collections program, using the Special Collections of the Pitts Theology Library as a case study. The first part of this workshop will present technical aspects of Special Collections processing and maintenance, such as description and cataloging, including distinguishing characteristics like illustrations, bindings or provenance. Preservation and disaster preparedness will also be addressed. The second half of the workshop will discuss other aspects of Special Collections management, such as collection development, cultivating donors, designing and installing exhibits of Special Collections materials and community outreach. It will attend to the use of Special Collections in instruction and the encouragement of students to make use of Special Collections for research projects as well as the involvement of library volunteers in projects like transcriptions, shelf-reading or docent tours. The workshop will be held at the Pitts Theology Library and will include a behind-the-scenes tour of the library’s facilities and holdings.

Transportation provided to Pitts Theology Library. 

Cost is $50 per person. Lunch is on your own.
