Subject: Special collections materials in general stacks

Special collections materials in general stacks

From: Charlotte B. Brown <cbbrown>
Date: Monday, April 15, 1996
In preparation for a seminar at the upcoming American Library
Association/Rare Books & Manuscripts Section (RBMS) pre-conference
in July 1996, I am requesting copies of guidelines or
decision-making forms which academic libraries/repositories are
using for the identification and transfer of special collections
materials located in general stack collections.

With permission, I would like to assemble these guidelines into a
packet for distribution at the pre-conference seminar.

My RBMS co-presenter, Janet Gertz (Columbia Univerity Preservation
Program) and I also anticipate collaborating with Debra McKern
(Library of Congress Preservation Directorate) in the development of
a series of workshops on specific identification techniques and
guidelines.  Again, a variety of examples would be very useful.

The intended audience for the workshops:  special collections
curators, preservation librarians, collection development
librarians, bibliographers.

Confidentiality & security implications: I acknowledge the fact that
this topic involves security issues and that the participating
library/repository might want to remain anonymous. The institutional
identities on the forms will be masked.

Please send your submissions to the address listed below.  Replies
appreciated by June 1st. If requested (and in return), I will be
happy to send copies of the UCLA guidelines.
