Special Collections librarians and other curators reading this may remember a recent survey by OCLC Research and Research Libraries UK asking for details about Special Collections funding, collections, staff etc. As you might imagine, the survey is closely linked with this project: both are part of the “promoting unique and distinctive collections” strand, one of RLUK’s five strategic aims for 2011-2014. The survey will provide masses of data about UK collections which will be essential for this project and useful for many other purposes. I’m looking forward to working with the OCLC people on bringing the survey to you soon.
