This course serves as a complement to the archives and records management course, providing a survey of principles and practices for people working with, curating, and managing rare books and special collections materials in libraries. The course will focus on aspects of this work, with special attention towards connecting materials with the public through exhibition, social media, digital collections, public programming, donor relations, advocacy, and other public services, and how these components of special collections librarianship fit into the world of archival work as well as the larger ┐cultural heritage┐ world. The course will also address some of the newer challenges we face with emerging and shifting technologies and changing perceptions about the purpose and value of collections, including ethical issues, legal issues, and representation of cultures and experiences in archival repositories. The course is a combination of discussion, lecture, writing, and project work. Readings will complement the projects and writings, and participation is key to the success of each course participant
