Bridging Private and Public Collections

Bridging Private and Public Collections

Description: 

While institutional and private collections often hold similar materials, and librarians and collectors often acquire materials in similar ways, the two groups often work in complete isolation from one another. This panel brings together a university librarian who works closely with private collectors, a curator for both public and private collections, and a collector who has used his collections in the classroom, a public context, for a conversation on the intersections between public and private, and how we might work together to achieve common goals.
