Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference for Off-Site Storage (MARCOSS)
April 10, 2018
McKeldin Library, University of Maryland Libraries, College Park, MD

The University of Maryland College Park Libraries is excited to announce MARCOSS (Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference for Off-Site Storage), a one-day conference for those who work in or with library off-site storage facilities in the mid-Atlantic region. This conference will take place at the McKeldin Library at the University of Maryland College Park. 

Traditional library concerns like access, preservation, systems, and collections are different in off-site storage than at the circulating libraries they support. MARCOSS will give participants the opportunity to develop a network among off-site storage library professionals in the mid-Atlantic region and learn about the work their colleagues do at their off-site storage facilities. Possible topics that the sessions will address include:

•    Access
•    Cataloging
•    Collections
•    Communications
•    Environmental controls
•    Moving in/accessioning
•    Preservation
•    Shelving methods
•    Special collections/university archives
•    Systems

The Call for Proposals is open through December 15, 2017, and registration information will be announced in January, so stay tuned and save the date!
