FAQs: Do you want to know what collections we have?

Yes, for my own interest: I always like to know about special collections that are new to me. It never ceases to amaze and delight me that, after twenty-odd years of working with special collections, I keep hearing about new ones.   Also, of course, the more I know about the sector, the better the work I do on the project will be.

However, this project is not aiming to map or list everybody’s collections in any formal way.  This would be an IMMENSE task and would not actually take us nearer to the aims of this project.

We are less interested in the exact details of collections held by particular libraries and much more interested in helping libraries tackle the issues they face in making the most of those collections.

I hope this makes sense!
