    Abstract

    Research and academic libraries continue to evolve through innovative and creative approaches to user engagement, technology and service delivery. Unique and distinctive collections in particular can provide us with new and exciting opportunities to engage with different audiences and enhance the overall user experience. Our poster aims to explore how our Special Collections & Archives have harnessed the potential of unique and distinctive collections through outreach, digitization, transformative space management and curriculum support, in line with our strategic plan. This approach has led to a significant increase in visitor numbers of up to 83% to our Special Collections & Archives.
