Thinking of federal and special libraries

Collaboration requires, by definition, more than one person on a project. Why don’t we branch out and make that other person (or other people) librarians from different types of libraries? Kendra K. Levine, in a recent blog post, writes passionately about the fact that federal and special libraries seem to be off of many librarians’ radar. She points to a FriendFeed discussion where a question was asked about Federal libraries and no responses were forthcoming. The point of her article is that we (meaning public and academic librarians, of course…) don’t think of special librarians; not their needs or their unique skills and resources. Those skills and resources could be a big help to your next collaborative project, so consider what a federal or special librarian could do for you!
