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 

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.
