Here is another paper from the 2012 Charleston Conference.

If You’ve Got It, Flaunt It!: Refocusing a Collection with No Connection” by Jennifer Ditkoff and Rodney Obien

Many libraries have a unique collection within their space that holds value and importance but has lost its connection to the college curriculum and the undergraduate research on campus. These collections may have had different people overseeing them over time or had changes in funding. They might have been created without thinking about the big picture. The paper examines one college library’s experience of turning an underused and unfocused collection into a vibrant and relevant part of the library through collaboration with key constituents in the academic and local community and staying true to the mission and vision.
