Thanks to everyone who has so far submitted proposals for the book I’m editing on innovative practices in reference for archives and special collections. While I’m still in the process of making the final decisions, there are some topics for which I received no proposals so I’m making a second more targeted call. I would like to include case studies in the areas of:
- Providing reference services on unprocessed or minimally processed collections
- Providing online researcher orientation resources
- Conducting user studies
- Assisting researchers by providing virtual access to requested materials
Here’s the earlier post with more information about this project. If you think you’d like to write a case study in one of these areas or have a suggestion for who might be a good candidate to do so, please contact me as soon as possible.
