Celebrating research : rare and special collections from the membership of the Association of Research Libraries( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"ARL has published a book and Web site profiling selected rare and special collections in major research libraries of North America, Celebrating Research: Rare and Special Collections from the Membership of the Association of Research Libraries. The compendium is a sampling of the abundance and variety of collections available for use. Special collections have been broadly construed to encompass distinctive, rare and unique, emerging media, born-digital, digitized, uncommon, non-standard, primary, and heritage materials. Celebrating Research includes 118 collection profiles, each from a different ARL member library. Each profile is illustrated with color photographs and tells a story of a single collection, recounting how the resources were acquired and developed. The compilation is rich with examples of how research libraries are engaging different communities to deliver library services and encourage the use of such distinctive collections. Also included is an introductory essay by British rare book expert Nicolas Barker and an appendix that provides a broad description of each library's special collection holdings and pertinent contact information. The book contains a detailed index; the Web site provides a search engine. The volume is the result of a collaborative effort among ARL member libraries on the occasion of the Association's 75th anniversary. It was edited by Philip N. Cronenwett, Special Collections Librarian Emeritus, Dartmouth College Library; Kevin Osborn, Research & Design Ltd.; and Samuel A. Streit, Director for Special Collections, Brown University Library."--Publisher's website
The Higher Education Act, Title II C Program : strengthening research library resources : a ten year profile and an assessment of the program's effects upon the nation's scholarship by Samuel Allen Streit( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this study is to trace how the Title II-C program has facilitated scholarly access to research materials across the United States. It is intended to give evidence of the importance of the Title II-C Program to libraries' efforts toward developing, preserving, and sharing their resources with the nation's scholars. The study consists of two components. Part 1 is a series of brief profiles presenting data pertaining to program funding by Congress, i.e., the number and size of grants awarded; the nature of institutions receiving Title II-C funding; the distribution of projects among the program's three primary funding priorities; and the geographical distribution of the 360 grants awarded between 1978 and 1989. Part 2 consists of 22 representative case studies, 11 of which illustrate the scope of project activity within the three program priorities--bibliographic access, preservation, and collection development. The remaining case studies describe the cumulative contributions of Title II-C funded projects to a single academic discipline: music. Two appendices describe the award process and highlight several issues and questions that merit additional consideration. The report concludes with a glossary of library and information science acronyms. (MAB)
