What You’ll Find in RLI no. 283

The cases were selected by the ARL Working Group on Transforming Special Collections in the Digital Age after issuing a call for proposals in 2012.
In an introduction to the issue, Lisa Carter provides an overview of themes that emerged from the case study submissions and she identifies areas for further investigation.
