November 20: Panel Discussion at NYU Fales Library

NYU invites you to attend "Wither Collecting? New Visions for Special Collections in the 21st Century," Panel Discussion at NYU Fales Library

Wednesday, November 20, 6:30 pm
Bobst Library, 3rd floor, inside the Fales Library
70 Washington Square South

The discussion compliments the current Fales Library’s Exhibition, “Past, Present, Future: New Acquisitions for the 21st Century”

The panel, composed of leading thinkers in the field of special collections, will share their thoughts about how special collections are and can be developed in the 21st century, as librarians look at new kinds of collecting to support new kinds of research, especially in area studies, post-structuralism, institutional critique, the death of the author, and other postmodern modes of criticism.
