Two conferences to watch…

Marketing and advocacy for special collections is up for discussion this year. Two big conferences will include talk of outreach and access for varied audiences.

CILIP Rare Books and Special Collections Group annual conference, Speaking Truth to Power: making special collections work in times of recession, includes a session on “Renaissance Books: Schools outreach at the Museum of the History of Science” as well as other talks that are sure to touch on the subject.

The IFLA conference has a session devoted to Marketing of rare and special collections in a digital age. Whilst there is not much information about the content of the individual talks on the webpage, the titles promise a wide-ranging discussion. I’m hoping to find out all about it from someone who can make it to Helsinki!

Is anyone reading planning to go to either conference?

  1. I’m hoping to get to the RBSCG conference. I applied for a bursary to go to IFLA, but clearly wasn’t appealing enough 😦 We’ll have to track down *someone* who’s going, though.

  2. I don’t think I’ll be at either, but would be interested to read reports from those that were there!

  3. Hey all, I’ll be presenting at the IFLA session above, and blogging live from the conference on-site. After the presentation I should be able to share both my paper and prezi freely!
