About the Event
Special collections are the jewels of their institutions, yet they also present unique challenges. This program will explore three topics of prime concern to special collections managers and library administrators: enhancing services to researchers, improving collections security, and supporting assessment activities and data-driven management decisions.
Join our panel of experts to learn how special collections and archives are moving into a new era using the latest techniques and tools – including Aeon, an online request and workflow management system that replaces the paper-based user registration forms and callslips that most institutions still use, even in this Internet Age. Discover the multiple benefits of moving special collections user services into the online environment, including the ability to maintain an electronic audit trail for every request and to mine data about collection usage and users.
