Information for Attendees



To celebrate the conclusion of its Consortial Survey Initiative, PACSCL hosted a two-day event exploring creative methods for improving management and access to archives and special collections. An outstanding lineup of speakers participated in a series of panels on different areas of our work, with plenty of opportunities for attendees to interact with the speakers and share their own ideas. The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), sponsor of an exciting new hidden collections initiative, graciously lent support to this event.
