ALIA Rare Books and Special Collections unites librarians responsible for, and interested in, rare books and special collections. This group provides a forum for discussion and the exchange of information on matters of interest to librarians working with rare books as well as special collections (including collections of ephemera, manuscripts, maps and pictorial materials). Our focus is on the collection, description, interpretation, preservation and use of these materials.
