Feedback form is now closed.
This session will feature three case studies representing large-scale, multi-institutional projects that are exploring processes to assess, transform, and sustain special collections and archives lifecycle operations at scale ranging from approaches to collection development, to promoting and assessing teaching and use of collections, to facilitating network-level discovery of collections. We will share the suite of tools created by the OCLC Research Library Partnership’s Collection Building and Operational Impacts Working Group, designed to support shared, informed collection building decisions for special collections that factor in the full resources required for ongoing stewardship of a potential acquisition. We will also examine the ongoing work on the Association of Research Library’s Research Library Impact Framework, which aims to provide research libraries with conceptual models, methodologies, data, and tools to tell their story locally in the context of the 21st-century research and learning ecosystem. The presentation will highlight efforts to measure and communicate the impact of special collections repositories on learning and teaching in academic institutions. Finally, the session will highlight a planning initiative to persistently, comprehensively, and sustainably aggregate finding aids and enable discovery of archival collections at the national level.
