ASERL Friends: As part of our expanding programming for Special Collections librarians, we are offering a new webinar, "Outreach and Community Engagement in Special Collections," on January 16. Community engagement has become increasingly important for those who work in special collections and archives. These activities attempt to bridge the divide and perceived remoteness between special collections and archival repositories and their immediate or regional communities. Listen and learn from two leaders in community engagement as they discuss how to give users agency in the growth of archives and special collections and a stake in representing their communities. Lynn Eaton, the Director of the Special Collections Research Center at George Mason University, will discuss her work with donors and campus and local communities to broaden knowledge and interest in their historical materials as well as her work with local activists while at James Madison University. Cristina Favretto, the Head of Special Collections at the University of Miami will discuss working with diverse populations in a vibrant artistic atmosphere as the University of Miami attempts to document the many sides of Miami – from the “Floribbean” cuisine to Miami’s hybrid music scene and the glamour of Art Basel Miami. Favretto will also discuss how to involve different constituencies in a constantly changing environment.
