Access to Penfield Library Special Collections: Extending the "Archival Bestiary" Concept.
Osborne, Nancy Seale
This paper discusses access to special collections at the State University of New York at Oswego (SUNY Oswego) library. Topics addressed include the role of student interns in processing materials; outreach programs, including a planned workshop for fourth grade teachers; library instruction sessions that allow students to examine new acquisitions; and beneficial relationships with various college groups and individuals, including the alumni association, the college photographer, the art gallery, and faculty members. Numerous references are made throughout to what is characterized as a whimsical but substantive article, "An Archival Bestiary," by Trudy Huskamp Peterson (The American Archivist, v54 n2 Spring 1991). It is noted that the article includes a glossary of "archives animalia." (MES)
