What do we do with this? Managing artifacts in your Collection
Often libraries become the stewards of historic and cultural artifacts from their communities. These non-circulating collections can present unique challenges to public, special and academic libraries alike. In this webinar you will discover strategies for managing your institution's special collection and issues to consider as you balance access and preservation. You will be presented with resources for improving archival storage as well as options for giving your collection a virtual presence. At the end participants will have a chance to share experiences and best practices.
