CRL Collection Development and Resource Sharing Workshop
Primary Sources for the Humanities and Social Sciences
The workshop is for collection development, interlibrary loan, and reference librarians at CRL member institutions. Attendees will hear about recent and planned additions to the CRL shared print, film and digital collections, and will share ideas for future cooperative collecting and services. Sessions will focus on four major collecting areas: newspapers, serials, foreign dissertations, and archives.
Topics of discussion for each section :
- How researchers are using primary source materials and best practices for leading researchers to those materials;
- Recent and pending work in cooperative collecting, preservation, and digitization of legacy materials, with particular emphasis on area studies and Global Resources projects;
- New and forthcoming reviews of relevant electronic resources in The Charleston Advisor and candidates for future TCA reviews.
