Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes in UNLV Special Collections to get a collection ready for patrons to use in our reading room? Here is the LASR intake area in Lied Library that allows staff to gain physical and intellectual control over large collections. Cyndi Shein, Head of Special Collections Technical Services and Tom Sommer, Special Collections Technical Services Librarian are currently working on bringing order to the Spilde Collection on Tribal Gaming for the upcoming NCAIS Workshop to be held in Special Collections, March 19-21.
