By Bob MacLean

In this interview, the SRS’s John Gallagher speaks with Bob MacLean, who’s Assistant Librarian for Rare Books in the Archives & Special Collections of the University of Glasgow Library. They discuss public engagement with special collections, and how archives and libraries can use Twitter and blogging to broaden engagement with their collections. A useful resource for anyone working in special collections or archives and hoping to build their social media presence, and for anyone thinking about the work that goes into a successful social media strategy in early modern studies!
