Cool job title! Interesting idea.
RLUK has appointed Alison Cullingford, Special Collections Librarian at the University of Bradford, to the position of Unique and Distinctive Collections Project Manager.
The aim of this specialised part-time role is to help maximise the potential of unique and distinctive collections (UDCs) in all formats held by RLUK members which are central to the missions of its individual institutions. For the period of the next year, RLUK will examine, amongst other issues, UDCs in respect of connection with research programmes and institutional missions, fundraising, external engagement, digitisation and promotion, and staff support. This work will result in a comprehensive report that will provide information on UDCs for RLUK member and other libraries, their current condition and future prospects, with case studies and recommendations.
