Join or Die: Collaboration in Special Collections

In June 2010, PACSCL welcomed more than 400 members of the Rare Books and Manuscript Section (RBMS) of the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association, to Philadelphia!  Collaboration was the conference theme, and PACSCL’s 25 years of cooperation was one of the models examined.  Events took place at the Doubletree Hotel, in the heart of Center City, as well as at the Chemical Heritage Foundation and the American Philosophical Society in Old City.  Attendees had many opportunities to get to know the city and PACSCL’s member institutions.  The links below include audio from the conference presentations.
