Special Collections & Archives Group

The group is co-chaired by Becky Bowd & Julie Parry

The remit of the Special Collections and Archives Group is to meet with other ALN library members to: 

  • exchange ideas and knowledge 
  • explore possible initiatives 
  • share development of best practice 
  • raise awareness of changes in the external environment 
  • make connections between colleagues working in Special Collections and Archives 

We acknowledge that active participation creates the biggest benefit for members.
