Agenda:

1. Welcome and introductions
2. Discussion: Crowdsourcing, Access, and the Digital in Special Collections - We consider one of the primary valued of the digital in special collections as the opportunity to increase access to our materials. In addition to the activity of digitization and the placing of images of collections online, we have seen over a number of years special collections units leading crowdsourcing projects. How have these projects worked to increase access? What does access mean in a world of digitized collections, and how do we increase the impact of our collections on the public?

I look forward to seeing you there on Sunday morning!

Best,
Kristen Mapes

Digital Special Collections DG Co-Convener (with Sara Sterkenberg)

Please join us for the LES Collections Discussion Group meeting on Sunday, June 25 from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM in the Hilton Chicago, Conference Room 4C.

We'll plan to start discussion with the following topics:

  • How are you dealing with the demand-driven acquisitions model (DDA/PDA)?
  • Are you still creating, updating, and/or following collection development guidelines for English or your other subject area(s)? Has this been changing with DDA and approval plans?
  • How do we prioritize and advocate for databases and other expensive purchases in our areas?How do we negotiate with our colleagues to balance the competing demands on the collections budget?

Other suggestions for topics are always welcome.

We hope to see you there!
