Special Collections
What is it?
“Unique and distinctive” collections of rare books, and many other
media, including born-digital and digitised documents (Cullingford)
“Elements of distinction that serve to differentiate an academic or
research library from its peers” (Dooley & Luce)
Formats:
• Early Printed Books
• Books from Presses
• Collections from individuals
• Newspapers
• Maps
• Pamphlets
• Literary Manuscripts
• Digital Files
Special Collections as a ‘Lab for the
Humanities’
Special Collections shapes research & results.
At the beginning of a project:
• Imagining benefits & challenges
• How to manage challenges
• Knowledge, skills and further projects that emerge.
What we learn that we (and others) can take for the
future?
Randy Bass
Which learning outcome is the one thing that
students would retain from this module after
leaving?
Could I honestly say that I spent the most amount
of time in the module teaching to the goal I valued
most?
Understanding how Special Collections could work
for their project without compromising the integrity
of material in Special Collections.
Bass, Randy. “The Scholarship of Teaching: What’s the Problem?” Creative Thinking About Learning & Teaching Feb. 1999 1.1.

  • 5. Randy Bass Which learning outcome is the one thing that students would retain from this module after leaving? Could I honestly say that I spent the most amount of time in the module teaching to the goal I valued most? Understanding how Special Collections could work for their project without compromising the integrity of material in Special Collections. Bass, Randy. “The Scholarship of Teaching: What’s the Problem?” Creative Thinking About Learning & Teaching Feb. 1999 1.1.
