SHARES discussion: Sharing Special Collections—Scanning portions and whole works
Join this session to discuss strategies and ask questions about the nuts and bolts of scanning special collections materials.
The OCLC SHARES Sharing Special Collections Working Group has compiled the tools your library needs to sensibly borrow and lend special collections materials. Join us for three virtual sessions that will guide you through step-by-step preparations for implementing the Principles and Protocols for Sharing Special Collections through Interlibrary Loan, adopted by SHARES in July 2021.
This second session, offered in a participatory discussion format, will delve into the nuts and bolts of scanning special collections materials. Join us for an overview of tools and the opportunity to ask questions and discuss strategies with colleagues and peers. Materials to be covered include:
- Dennis Massie, Senior Program Officer, OCLC Research
- Brian Miller, Head of Interlibrary Services, The Ohio State University
This opportunity is a follow-up of the October OCLC SHARES Webinar, Implementing the SHARES Sharing Special Collections Principles and Protocols: Overview. In advance of the discussion, we encourage participants to watch the webinar recording.
This discussion will not be recorded or shared after the fact, but we will summarize the discussion in a forthcoming post in the OCLC Research blog, Hanging Together.
These sessions are open to staff at any OCLC Research Library Partnership member institution.
Interlibrary loan practitioners, special collections curators/staff, administrators, digitization units, mailroom personnel, and other local stakeholders with an interest in sharing and stewarding collections are encouraged to attend. Consider inviting colleagues from your library to join the discussion.
