Description: Two special collections experts present the first rare books handbook of practice in 25 years, and the first to discuss the role of digital technologies. Beginning with a fascinating discussion of the history and current state of rare book libraries, the authors quickly move to a detailed accounting of the core skills and knowledge needed to successfully manage a rare book collection. Topics include best practices for handling, housing, and conserving rare materials; collection development and working with book dealers and auction houses; and user education and outreach.
