ALIA New Librarians' Symposium 9 (NLS9), 5-7 July 2019 Adelaide: collaborate deviate innovate
This presentation (PowerPoint slides) supported the talk exploring how two Mechanics’ Institutes have evolved from their beginnings to each become leaders in their own fields. One has become the premier loanable collection of Victorian History and uses innovative methods and collaboration to promote this vital collection to the community. The other has built a collaborative network with musicians, playwrights, literary award organisers, artists, and members to create an extensive events and clubs program which compliments the general collection.
