Summary
"Once treated as exclusive spaces for valuable but hidden and under-utilized material, over the past few decades special collections departments have been transformed by increased digitization and educational outreach efforts into unique and highly visible major institutional assets. What libraries must now contemplate is how to continue this momentum by articulating and implementing a dynamic strategic vision for their special collections.

"This book grew out of a colloquium on 'Forging the Future of Special Collections,' which was held in October 2014 and organized by the Kelvin Smith Library at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. The colloquium evolved from a Rare Book Forum at the Library of Congress that was given in 2001, called 'Private Collectors and Special Collections Libraries,' which was organized by Mark Dimunation, Chief of the Rare Book and Special Collections Division at the Library of Congress, and aided by Dan DeSimone."--Introduction
