Series: CityLIS 'AfterHours' Research Seminar Series

Abstract

In this session we will explore the world of rare books and special collections librarianship. We will take a look at what sets rare books and special collections material apart from other kinds of information resource, and think about what influence this has on collection management, cataloguing, access, and the skillset expected of the modern rare books librarian.
