An Enduring Presence: Special Collections of the Barr Smith Library at the University of Adelaide
Hoskin, Cheryl
Australian Library Journal, v58 n2 p160-172 May 2009
This paper is a practical and personal perspective on the challenges faced by special collections in an increasingly digital environment, and the strategies employed to promote their unique resources to the academic and wider communities, including the value of promoting heritage through reconstructing collections and the place of expertise in the provision of a high level of service to users. Special collections within research institutions provide enduring value.
