Chair: Scott Schofield, Huron University College

The aim of this session is to brainstorm ways in which the SCIG can serve special collections’ professionals and users through information sharing, networking, training, advocacy, and outreach. Several BSC-SbC members felt that it would be beneficial to create a group within the BSC that would give those interested in special collections a forum to discuss issues of mutual interest. Everyone with an interest in the field is welcome, be they information professionals, professors, students or members of the book trade.
