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
Philadelphia, PA

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.


  1. Welcome and introductions
  2. News sharing: let us know what’s new in manuscripts, art, ephemera, etc. at your institution (major acquisitions, processing milestones, etc.)
  3. 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.
  4. Discussion of issues and queries presented to the group
