Forging the Future of Special Collections, edited by Arnold Hirshon, Robert H. Jackson, and Melissa Hubbard.

Jolie Braun


Forging the Future is a new collection of essays by some of the most prominent special collections librarians, curators, rare book dealers, and collectors currently working in the field. Originating from presentations given at the National Colloquium on Special Collections, the book explores the current and future concerns of special collections. The 2014 conference was organized by the Kelvin Smith Library at Case Western Reserve University, and the editors of this volume include Associate Provost and University Librarian Arnold Hirshon, 2013–2014 Distinguished Visiting Scholar Robert H. Jackson (also a rare book collector and coeditor of the 2007 Book Talk, a clear predecessor of Forging the Future), and Team Leader of Scholarly Resources and Special Collections Melissa Hubbard.
