Description: From School Library Journal
Ten essays that offer advice on many aspects of collection development, acquisition, preservation, funding, and promotion of special collections of children's books in academic or public libraries. The informative discussions cover topics such as acquiring out-of-print materials, securing a professional appraisal of rare books, the elements of a complete catalog record, archival preparation of original materials, organizing a Friends group, preservation and security, and public relations and programming. Many chapters include useful appendixes that provide directories of dealers or organizations, or sample policies. While some entries are more informative than others, all offer enthusiastic encouragement to anyone contemplating working with special collections. This small but substantial handbook would also serve as a valuable guide to libraries considering whether to establish or continue support for a special collection.
