Midwinter 2014 Agenda: Manuscripts and Other Formats Discussion Group
RBMS Manuscripts and Other Formats Discussion Group
Saturday, January 25, 2014 – 1:00pm to 2:30pm
Pennsylvania Convention Center – 119 A
ALL ARE WELCOME – please come join the discussion
Purpose (from the RBMS Manual): To serve as an open forum for discussion about topics relating to the curatorial management of manuscripts, archival records, and other primary research materials, usually in non-printed formats, including but not limited to photographic material, artwork, electronic records, and ephemera.
- Welcome and introductions
- News sharing: let us know what’s new in manuscripts, art, ephemera, etc. at your institution (major acquisitions, processing milestones, etc.)
- Call for issues and queries from the group: take advantage of the critical mass of people interested in non-book formats to try out ideas, pose questions, and seek advice. Are you the only person working with “other formats” at your institution? We’re here for you.
- Discussion of issues and queries presented to the group
