Crashing the IR Party: Artists as Scholars in Institutional Repositories

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Session attendees will learn about four initiatives to integrate visual art scholarship into institutional repositories. Following the presentations, attendees will be able to participate in a moderated panel discussion.
The speakers will address best practices, current issues, and future possibilities for featuring visual artwork in institutional repositories or other open digital scholarship platforms. The panel conversation, which will engage both presenters and attendees, will explore big-picture, theoretical considerations such as scholarly communication in the arts, image copyright and open access, IRs as a site of information literacy education, and the value of visual artwork as scholarship.
