RBMS2020 Conference Program Planning provides this spreadsheet to serve as an informal tool to connect individuals who want to brainstorm ideas for session proposals and/or find collaborators for session proposals. It is monitored by the Marketing Subcommittee of the RBMS20 Conference Program Planning Committee, but it is not part of the official proposal process.

Find the full Call for Proposals and proposal form at http://bit.ly/RBMS20CFP.

9/21/2019Rosemary K. J. Davis and Meaghan O'Riordanrosemary.davis@yale.edu; meaghan.oriordan@emory.eduseminar"Caring for Collections: The Role of Accessioning in Effective Stewardship" - We are currently engaged in a research project with this working title. We’re interested in making accessioning work more visible in every way, primarily by illuminating the sorts of labor and relationships required in order to steward archival collections during the initial phases of acquisitions and accessioning. For RBMS, we would like to work with others lifting the veil on invisible labor (including with print collections) and talk about how making that work visible also produces better experience, description, and access for stakeholders.accessioning; stewardship; collection stewardship; relationships; labor; invisible laborMelanie Wisner, mmwisner@fas.harvard.eduAngela White, angwhite@iupui.edu

9/26/2019Moira Fitzgearldmoira.fitzgerald@yale.edunot sureI'm interested in sharing the work of the Borrow Direct Sharing Special Collections Materials via Resource Sharing Pilot Project , http://www.borrowdirect.org/sharing-special-collections-materials-via-resource-sharing-pilot-project/ . Beinecke Library started participating in the pilot in October 2017. In January 2019, Beinecke extended the serive to all institutions. The work has helped us expand access to sepcial collections and has raised questions about how tools like the planned Borrow Direct Shared Index could impact discovery of special collections material. I'd be happy to put together a panel of proposals around reltated topis, such as patron digitization, resource sharing, interlibrary loan, etc. Thanks!resource sharing, patron digitization

10/3/2019Bob Kosovskybobkosovsky@nypl.orgpanel or other"Power, Resistance, Leadership." I'm sure all institutional workers have experienced a situation where administration or a supervisor takes a position that we feel is in opposition to the care or integrity of our collections. I would love to hear stories/case studies of how staff members dealt with such challenges. This is important because it is a never-ending aspect of our professional careers.Expressions of dominance, power, negotiationDawne Howard Lucas, dawne_lucas@unc.edu

10/4/2019Katharine Chandlerkchandler74@gmail.comSeminar/panelThe gig economy in special collections--how does the gig economy affect our collections and our profession? I'm looking for people who work in this capacity and want to share their experiences, or for people who have been project managers at libraries and are interested in sharing what their experiences have been. I myself am interested in speaking from the side of how professional library contractors operate as vendors with federal agencies and private entitites (as an example). I have several people who have responded via my Twitter CFP in the past week, but you can email me or say something more about it here: https://katharinechandler.typeform.com/to/kbUNfB Would love to hear from you!Gig economy ; archives ; cataloging ; part-time ; vendors ; contracts ; contract workKatharine Chandler, via email kchandler74@gmail.com or phone 267.949.6929

10/10/19Deborah Cooperdsc255@cornell.eduPapers/PanelThe power of collaboration to uncover hidden stories: A casual conversation with a frequent visitor, a grad student researcher, has led to a powerful long-term collaboration in special collections. Driven by the student's own interests in translating rare works in the Russian language, we have now hired this person as an intern. Through her translation and historical expertise we are uncovering stories of resistance long forgotten about scientists in Soviet-era Russia whose work endured despite unrest and the threat of the gulag. This unique and historically valuable collection was previously shelf-sitting and inaccessible. The results are snowballing into research, outreach, exhibits, cross-campus collaborations etc. I’m looking for other people who could form a panel to present papers/case studies on small, local collaborations that have had/or could have a big impact from the perspective of uncovering previously unknown or little-used collections, with silenced voices now being heard again.collaboration, accessibility, hidden collectionsAllie McCormack, allie.mccormack@utah.eduTracy Bergstrom, tbergstr@nd.eduAmalia Castañeda, amalia@museumofsocialjustice.org

Papers -- lightning talksWe are interested in proposing a panel of lightning talks on the subject of teaching with special formats in archives and special collections. Two of us are planning to speak to teaching with drawings and architectural records. We are currently seeking 5 other panelists to present on teaching with other types of special formats beyond manuscript material, such as: artwork, artist books, born digital records, fabric/textiles, material samples, 3-D objects, and maps and other oversized materials. We’re interested in discussing challenges, solutions, and creative teaching plans. Please contact one of us directly if you are interested in participating.teaching; primary source literacy; special formats; artist books; fabrics; textiles; born digital materials; artwork; 3-D objects; challenges; solutions; creative teaching; lesson plansijli

10/16/2019Amanda Axelaaxel@adlerplanetarium.orgPanel or participant driven sessionI'm interested in proposing either a panel or a participant driven session on the issues rare book librarians/curators face in trying to diversify our existing special collections, specifically when it comes to science special collections that are historically incredibly white, male, and European. This includes looking at how we use metadata, our collection development policies, as well as large scale inventories to identify gaps. Diversity; rare books; metadata; collection development
