Abstract
Various divisions, branches, and departments within the University of Kentucky Libraries collect University publications, most especially the University Archives. Depending on the reasons for acquisition and the Library area's descriptive practices, the publications are more or less discoverable by fellow librarians and by researchers. Is it possible to develop workflows that allow the University Archivist to collect and maintain University publications at a collection or unit level, while simultaneously providing bibliographic item-level access to the same publications? In today's environment of high levels of technology, library and archives online management systems, and discovery systems, is it possible for libraries and archives to work collaboratively to provide greater access to this hidden collection? Ruth Bryan, University Archivist in UK Libraries' Special Collections Research Center, and Cindy Cline, UK Libraries Cataloger, will discuss how they have used serials from the University of Kentucky's College of Agriculture, Food and Environment as a model to mainstream university publications acquired by University Archives through cooperative workflows, intellectual and physical control, accessibility, and storage using ArchivesSpace, Alma, and Primo.
