Cornell University, THIS USEFUL COMPENDIUM OFFERS inspiration and rele. vant case studies on how staff in special collections and liaison librarians can. impact research teaching and learning by working collaboratively Although. the walls physical and psychological that divide special collections and the. rest of the library system are more commonplace than not there are forces. underway that are leading to greater synergy, The dominance of e resources for general collections shifts the focus. on physical collections more towards special collections Journal. literature has gone almost totally electronic and e books are making. some headway too As a consequence general stack collections are. undergoing deselection or transfer to offsite and shared storage fa. cilities Special collections assume a greater role in defining the local. campus collection, The growing importance of digital scholarship content tools.
techniques requires greater digital access to special collections. materials More primary source databases are being made available. as licensed resources and there is a concomitant interest in digitizing. local holdings as well Digital scholarship helps mainstream special. collections holdings, Libraries continue to expand their support for teaching information. literacy The definition of requisite twenty first century information. skills continues to broaden towards technology competencies but. also towards critical thinking and the importance of primary source.

Library outreach beyond arts and humanities has led to reimagining. the role of special collections materials to support the sciences and. social sciences Collections that span disciplinary boundaries are. seeing greater emphasis such as those focusing on the history of. science human sexuality pop culture and science fiction. The rise of liaison programs has led to formalized personal links at. the department discipline level Support for research and teaching. extends to special collections materials, Increasing specialization needs e g in IT preservation intellectual. property and contractual rights linked data storage digital foren. sics and social media requires expertise outside special collections. leading to greater collaboration Matrix management approaches. that bring together individuals across traditional vertical administra. tive lines can accelerate this trend, Even as these forces shift special collections more to the center of library. life there remain countervailing forces that maintain a divide. By emphasizing differences and distinctive needs the commonalities. that bind special collections and other areas of the library tend to be. Distinct hours access policies technical processing resource dis. covery approaches and physical locations represent exceptions that. require workarounds from mainstreamed operations, Special can convey a sense of superiority giving rise to mispercep.
tions distrust rivalry and jealousy As one case study noted The. invisible wall created by library deans however unintentional when. placing their special collections units on development pedestals are. detrimental to departmental relations and therefore library services. and operations that are holistic See Chapter 7, Different administrative reporting structures can exacerbate rather. than minimize organizational divides Senior leadership must signal. the importance of working closely together, Emphasis on the physicality of special collections objects is increas. ingly contrasted with general collections as they become disembod. ied digital objects more valued for their informational content and. ease of use rather than their materiality, The rise of liaison programs can lead to turf wars over areas of re. sponsibility and the primacy of contacts with faculty. This volume offers examples of ways to keep the momentum going It be. gins with three overarching chapters that explore collaboration between liai. Foreword vii, son and special collections librarians including a thorough literature review. a proposed framework for acquiring general and special collections that doc. ument the history of the academy and remain responsive to campus curric. ular needs and a tutorial on object based pedagogy that can underpin such. arrangements The thirteen case studies that follow provide concrete examples. of how to move the needle towards sustainable efforts and away from one off. Among traditional markers of synergy mentioned are the development of. LibGuides that reference both general and special materials the creation of ex. hibition programs across the library that complement special collections exhi. bitions at Dartmouth and the co sponsoring of events such as celebrations of. anniversaries Formalized arrangements are also popping up that can lead to. deeper more consistent partnerships in collection building instruction and. community outreach In the volume several examples of team teaching where. an instruction librarian and a special collections curator join forces to enhance. twenty first century literacies or to connect holdings across the library sys. tem such as from the Georgia Institute of Technology and The Claremont. Colleges Subject specialists are also being drawn into instructional programs. focused on special collections where their disciplinary or language expertise. adds context and scope at Yale and Miami University This volume s editors. teamed up with language instructors and students at the University of Roch. ester to extend traditional language acquisition skills through the translation. of posters in the AIDS Education Posters Collection produced worldwide in. seventy five languages At the University of Vermont a liaison librarian and a. special collections librarian introduced primary source materials as learning. modules in the education of future teachers At San Diego State University a. liaison librarian and special collections librarian have teamed up to build cat. alog teach fundraise and engage the community in their comic book collec. tion A similar case focused on the Science Fiction Collection at Georgia Tech. in which archivists and librarians worked together to bring the collection to. STEM fields as well as digital humanities Selectors and curators have pooled. their resources to purchase materials that build connections across general. and special collections holdings such as African American poetry at James. Madison University and artists books at the University of Illinois at Urba. na Champaign At Oklahoma State University a liaison librarian and special. collections librarian partnered with an English professor to bring special col. lections materials and digital humanities affordances into the classroom The. partnership has expanded to other subject areas and the promotion of research. at the undergraduate level The history librarian at the University of Oklahoma. has been physically embedded in the special collections facility where she and. the Western History Collections librarian have gotten into the habit of work. ing together formally and informally,viii FOREWORD.
One could go further in bridging divides by establishing joint appoint. ments in both special collections and reference departments offering adjunct. curator appointments for area studies librarians in special collections or as. signing general selector responsibilities to special collections staff There are. other examples presented in this volume upon which to move from specific. projects to ongoing programs including the primary source lab series at The. Claremont Colleges and the effort at Pitts Theology Library at Emory Uni. versity to co develop a volunteer docent program If special collections are. destined to become the mainstay of the library many more paths to deeper. collaboration can and should be developed Special collections and liaison li. brarian partnerships offer a good foundation from which to take root across. administrative physical and cultural divides,Introduction. Kristen Totleben and Lori Birrell,University of Rochester. IN A TWENTY FIRST CENTURY ACADEMIC library its, unique collections distinguish it from other libraries Special collections and. liaison librarian partnerships can have a tremendous impact on the work with. in the library and the university community Librarians and their collaborative. partners can use their expertise and creativity to increase exposure to special. collections by working interdepartmentally on instruction collection devel. opment research processing and other projects Through these experiences. librarians gain a deeper understanding of the roles of each department and. work together to achieve strategic goals for the benefit of research and schol. arly communities, In collaborative relationships the work is synergistic and brings out the. best in its contributors The collaborative work we were doing together col. lection processing instruction and exhibition curation inspired us to edit. 1 Chapter 1 Special Collections and Liaison Librarian Partnerships A Review of the Literature Sarah M Horowitz 17 Chapter 2 Framing Collaboration Archives IRs and General Collections Amy Cooper Cary Michelle Sweetser Scott Mandernack and Tara Baillargeon 45 Chapter 3 Object Based Pedagogy New Opportunities for Collaboration in the Humanities Nora Dimmock PART 2 CASE STUDIES
