Collaborative collection building
- Collaboration in collection-centered teaching, learning, and scholarship
- Collaboration in publishing, description and discovery of digital collections, or digital object management, or in conservation/preservation
- Collaborative approaches to staffing cultural heritage organizations on campus
- Collaborative approaches to cultural heritage leadership on campus, e.g., organizations where one (or more) museums report as part of the University Library, e.g., the recent integration of the Library and Museum at Southern Illinois University
A local example of the type of collaboration this might include is described at:
If you are engaged in a sustained collaboration between your academic library and a museum on campus (or off), and would like to talk about a possible project to look more broadly as this important trend across libraries, archives, and museums, please send me (Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org) and Scott a note off-list (email@example.com) with a brief description of your work. We are, of course, interested in both the opportunities and the challenges (especially as we think about issues related to funding, staffing, assessment, marketing, advancement, etc.).
