This roundtable is open to any Special Collections and/or Rare Books librarians or staff from across New York State. While the focus is on Upstate New York, Special Collections personnel from neighboring regions are, of course, welcome to join us. The idea of the roundtable format is to allow for informal discussion, networking, idea sharing, etc. Moreover, it is meant to be participant driven, so discussion topics and locations will be chosen by you and facilitated by representatives from the sponsoring Councils.
