Project Title: Processing Special Collections: Blurring Boundaries, Backlogs and Intra-Institutional Cooperation, or, What Do We Do with All This Stuff?

Abstract: In Fall 2010 I was an intern at the Tamiment Library, charged with processing additions to the Tamiment Newspaper Collection and the Tamiment Library Pamphlet Collection.  Using my foundational knowledge of issues in special collections, I examine a real-life scenario of intra-institutional cooperation between libraries and archives in the context of reducing backlogs and maintaining professional values.
