WNYLRC Special Libraries Breakfast Discussion

Join your colleagues for a Special Libraries Breakfast Discussion at WNYLRC on Thursday September 14 from  8:30am to 11am

Trying to find a place to store your newest accessions? Still haven’t found space for things already part of your holdings? You are not alone!

Why not join your colleagues from across the region to discuss the issue of physical storage for collections and what common concerns and/or challenges you may have. As part of the discussion, we have invited guests to join us who have been involved in cooperative efforts with multiple organizations to develop shared spaces for storage and programming. They can relate some of their experiences and maybe provide ideas and suggestions for tackling the space dilemma!

If you can attend, please register by Wednesday September 6th!

See you then!
