PCCLD Special Collections Powerpoint

929 views

Published on

This powerpoint provides an overview of the Special Collections Department at the Rawlings Library, as well as diagrams for the website that I have created as an outreach tool. PCCLD recently launched its new website, but it does not provide information about the history and genealogy collection. This goal of this website is to increase the collection's visibility and therefore its users.
