Rearranged and often expanded from presentations at an October 2014 colloquium in Cleveland, Ohio, 17 essays look at special collections within libraries from the perspectives of communities, the enduring object, and from periphery to center. Librarians, booksellers, literature scholars, and others explore such topics as the role of special collections librarians and archivists in creating new life for community-based collections, the role of the auction house, how literary archives have changed and how they are changing, special collections in an age of digital scholarship, and the future of special collections.
