This one-day satellite meeting will highlight the management and promotion of African special collections using the Bleek and Lloyd Collection as an introduction and conceptual framework for further discussion. Discussion topics will include: challenges and opportunities of managing split collections and diverse locations; managing mixed-format collections; collaboration with a curatorial center; digitization, crowd-sourcing; challenges associated with language, dialect, and notation; public outreach; and ways to stimulate new research.  A second day of tours will be organized during the congress week to relevant Cape Town respositories.
