ALIA Rare Books and Special Collections is a forum for library and information professionals who are responsible for, and interested in, rare books and special collections. The group provides an opportunity for discussion and the exchange of information on rare books as well as other special collections including ephemera, manuscripts, maps and pictorial materials. Our focus is on the collection, description, preservation, interpretation, promotion and use of these materials.
