With increasing staff shortages and budgetary restraints the unique value of art library special collections can seem a luxury or even an unnecessary expense. This session presents two different, but complimentary, case studies, each leveraging both institutional mission and faculty / student collaboration to develop special collections with no additional funds or staff. In doing so it aims to provide adaptable models that may fit a variety of institutional settings regardless of size or budgets.
