Notes

Abstract: Let's hit the road! According to a study by the US Department of Commerce, 81% of adults who took a trip of 50 miles or more in the past year which could be considered cultural and heritage tourism. The demographic profile of these tourists suggests they are young, educated, and wealthy. Family history and genealogy is now considered America's second favorite pastime (behind gardening). Genealogists commonly combine their vacations with their research, favoring locations with the most promising archives. How can special collections support tourism initiatives and use heritage tourism to widen their base of support? This session is intended for special collections librarians at any skill level interested in outreach projects as well as archival managers and administrators seeking to demonstrate new types of value in special collections.
