A Tale of Three Projects: Sharing Special Collections Materials via Resource Sharing

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As Resource Sharing operations have grown, modernized, and broadened, libraries are increasingly comfortable loaning legacy formats such as a/v, microformat, curriculum, or other materials. However, sharing of Special Collections materials via Resource Sharing remains a challenge for many libraries due to concerns about fragility, rarity, workflow, approval processes, and other issues. Libraries involved in SHARES, the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA), and the Ivy Plus Libraries have found some solutions to these tricky issues, created some freely-available tools, and implemented programs to facilitate the sharing of these rare, and often deeply needed items. Come hear how we’ve made it work!
