Special Collections and Heritage Network (SCHN)

The RLUK Special Collections and Heritage Network (SCHN) is a professional peer network for RLUK members leading cultural heritage activities within member libraries. Research libraries offer a variety of cultural heritage services and are custodians for a multitude of different types of collections. Special Collections and Heritage professionals are an integral part of research at institutional, national and international levels, acting as partners and collaborators and as primary investigators. Members of the network might include those working with/in archives, rare books, art and object collections, museums, galleries, conservation and their allied services.

The SCHN will act as a forum for discussion, harness RLUK members’ collective experience and expertise, and will be responsible for the development and delivery of programmes of work in direct support of a network action plan.
