Where are we as a profession after two decades of grant-funded collections survey and processing work? Are our institutions operating more or less sustainably? Have we increased use, and what has that meant for our repositories? Prepare for the future by joining us for a panel discussion of the past twenty years of the hidden collections era.

Michels: Introduction to the Hidden Collections Era
Bradley-Sanders: The collection is no longer "hidden" - now what?
Evangelestia-Dougherty: This too shall NOT pass: Sustainability of Hidden Collections Funding Initiatives
Hocking: The impact of Hidden Collections funding on a small repository
