Throughout 2021, I’ve been hard at work researching, writing and proofing the third edition of the Handbook for Facet Publishing.
I have reviewed every single word, example, diagram, link and reference for this new edition: you can be sure that nothing has stayed in from the previous one unless it earned its place. I tried to balance imparting knowledge about sector practice with encouraging new thinking about the great challenges we face: global heating, decolonisation, and using the ‘digital shift’ to bring people and collections together.
The new edition has a vivid green cover, chosen so it will stand out on your bookshelves for quick reference, and I thought this was rather fitting in view of the increased focus on ‘greening’ Special Collections.
Find out more about the book and pre-order your copy via the Facet Publishing website. I hope you’ll find it a helpful companion for your Special Collections journey!
