Abstract

While deciding on a title for this presentation, I selected one that was less provocative than that which initially occurred to me, the first iteration being: "Foxes Guarding the Hen House: The Coming Archival Takeover of Special Collections." I decided against this title for two reasons: first, it overstates the current situation and likely future condition of research IIbraries· generally, and special collections units in particular; and, second, it. only exacerbates the attitudinal problem that I believe all of us need to acknowledge.
