Archives Week 2017 -- Engaging Audiences with Hybrid Collections: Archives, Books, Artifacts, Artworks
One of the challenges facing the professional community at this time is how best to manage, provide access to, and promote interest in collections that span multiple kinds of material object; whether archives, books, artifacts, or visual arts. This talk will address our work in analog and digital approaches at the Hagströmer Medico-Historical Library and Unit for Medical History and Heritage at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.
