Special Collections in View: Marketing and Outreach as Reference Services

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


This article discusses the marketing and promotion of special collections in academic law libraries as complementary to, and a part of, effective reference services based in those collections. The two activities can share similar goals and be mutually reinforcing: good marketing can lead to better reference service and an increase in patrons using special collections; and better, more engaged reference service can lead to long-term interest and support for special collections among a library’s stakeholders.
