Special Collections Roundtable
First up! Managing Volunteers and Interns
Do you have a crew of helpful volunteers and interns or does it sometimes feel like they just create more work? We'll discuss the benefits and challenges that unpaid labor brings to special collections. Topics will include setting expectations, creating discrete projects, training and quality control, and managing relationships. Kate Wells, Rhode Island Collections Curator at Providence Public Library will make a presentation and lead a discussion on the important resources of volunteers and interns.
Next up: news and announcements from the assembled and networking opportunities.
The last hour will be a tour of the historic Redwood Library and Athenaeum including some looks behind the scenes.
