Very pleased that the latest issue of CILIP Update features a section all about the latest in Special Collections. Special Collections is an incredibly dynamic and exciting area of library work, and it is good to see this feature in a title aimed at all librarians. There’s a piece by Karen Attar about the new Directory and one by me about our innovative collections development policy at Bradford. There’s some fantastic illustrations of materials from our collections too.
Sorry, CILIP Update is only available to CILIP members and libraries who subscribe to it. If you don’t have access, following the links in the paragraph above will take you to other writing by Karen and me about our respective contributions.
PS I haven’t blogged much lately for which apologies. NOT for lack of things to say though. I’ve been putting all my writing energy into our application for archive accreditation, which should be going in today. I’ll write about the experience of applying and many other things soon.
