Additional Course Description
The five C’s: Contact, Cooperation, Coordination, Collaboration, and Convergence. These are the five main stages developed by the American Library Association, Society of American Archivists, and American Association of Museums to establish programs that will enable the institutions to take advantage of each other’s assets. What is the rationale behind this noble goal?How realistic is this program? Are there “borders” preventing it? What are the imperatives driving it? Students will interact with specialists in the field and research the possibilities and practicalities of mutual cultural ventures.
