One thing that makes starting community engagement projects in special collections challenging is the lack of accessible written examples of good practice.
To improve the situation I have asked some librarians who are doing successful outreach to blog about their work – to provide ideas and encouragement for others who want to do something similar.
The first three guest blogs will be posted throughout June.
Although the methods are varied, you may notice there is an Oxbridge college library bias here. Hopefully a lot that they write will be transferable and I hope other engaging librarians will volunteer. Please email me if you’d like to guest blog!
