Not at all.
The project is funded by Research Libraries UK, so its members must benefit from our work. However, to ensure this happens, the final report will need to be based on as much knowledge, innovation, experience as possible. So we will look beyond the RLUK member libraries to Special Collections held by other organisations. As I said in my forthcoming book, Special Collections are everywhere, held by cathedrals, museums, learned societies, historic houses and so many more. This project is a wonderful opportunity to bring all these organisations together to celebrate collections and find new ways to work together.
It is also worth emphasising that the project will not be limited to the study of issues and activities in UK libraries. We will be making links and researching collections worldwide.
