To round out this blog, I’ve added a number of active and dormant special collections blogs (with some archives-specific ones thrown in for good measure) to the blogroll column on the left. One of the things that struck me while curating the list is that blogs give a unique opportunity for small regional or public special collections to stand on equal footing with much larger institutions. Moreover, they present an opportunity for collections that have been fragmented to conceptually be re-linked together for researcher.
It’s exciting to see so many special collections experimenting with blogs, and to also observe some of the creative ways the format is being used. If I haven’t listed your blog, please feel welcome to email me with the name and address or leave a comment.
