Scholars and Librarians Collaborating to Develop Online Collections from Multiple Perspectives

Tuesday, March 09 | 5:30PM–6:20PM | Room 552 A
Session Type: Professional Development
Supporting scholars requires libraries and scholars themselves to explore different approaches for developing and enhancing online collections. At MIT and UConn libraries, online collections are being developed by collaborating with scholars to create online collections for scholars. Highlighting two perspectives on developing collections for scholars, this session will explore MIT's involvement with SAHARA (Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) Architecture Resources Archive) and UConn's Map and Geographic Information Center (MAGIC) collections. Join us as we share ideas on how your campus can approach collaborative online collections.
