Leadership Institute (By Invitation Only)
How do assumptions, mental models, and paradigms held by the leadership and profession affect how ARLIS/NA leadership views the Society and its role in the field? What are some of the most critical uncertainties facing our profession? At this year’s Leadership Institute, participants will examine key mental models, explore a range of alternative future scenarios that might unfold for ARLIS/NA and the profession, develop strategies for operating strategically within each scenario, and identify implications for future Executive Board and committee work. This workshop will provide opportunities for ARLIS/NA leadership to hone their strategic and generative analysis and decision-making skills, thereby enhancing Board and committee capacity to govern effectively in the future.


The workshop will be facilitated by Frank Martinelli, President of the Center for Public Skills Training. Mr. Martinelli has over 35 years of work, training, and consulting experience and specializes in strategic planning, governing board development, and community partnership and alliance building.


The workshop is by invitation-only.

ARLIS/NA Yearlong Mentoring Program Workshop
You must apply and be accepted to the Yearlong Mentoring Program in order to attend the workshop. The Yearlong Mentoring Program is administered by the Mentoring Subcommittee. For more information about the program, visit Mentoring Programs on the ARLIS/NA website. Applications to the program will open in January and the link will be on the Mentoring Programs page. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Friedman (jennifer.friedman@umass.edu).


Do you have leadership experience within your organization or within ARLIS/NA, or are you hoping to attain a leadership role in the future? The ARLIS/NA Mentoring Subcommittee is focusing its 2018-19 career mentoring program on cultivating relationships between mentors and mentees interested in leadership. This workshop will be the catalyst for the year-long mentoring program, pairing emerging and established leaders in the art library community and providing them with the tools to support and carry out a successful mentoring relationship.


The four-hour workshop is loosely modeled on the 2005 ARLIS/NA Mentoring Program workshop led by Margaret Law, associate director of the University of Alberta Learning Services. Mentoring subcommittee members will lead the workshop. Prior to the workshop, there will be pre-work that includes an introduction to mentoring; characteristics of mentors, mentees, and the mentoring relationship; realistic goal-setting; appropriate behavior and expectations; methods of communication; and benefits and potential pitfalls of mentoring. The presentation will continue building on these topics through PowerPoint, discussion, group-work, and working in your mentoring pairs.


Fee: $0
Advance application and acceptance required, see above.

Day Trip: Dia:Beacon: Guided Tour - Sponsored by IvoryPress - SOLD OUT
Website: https://www.diaart.org/visit/visit/diabeacon-beacon-united-states


Occupying a former Nabisco box printing factory on the banks of the Hudson River, Dia:Beacon presents the Dia Art Foundation collection of post-modern and conceptual art from the 1960s to the present as well as special exhibitions, new commissions, and public and education programs. Attendees will take a special guided tour of the collection and the impressive building.


The original building had many key design elements that made it an appealing site for contemporary art, including broad spans between supporting columns and more than 34,000-square-feet of skylights. Today these skylights provide natural light in the galleries and have uniquely established Dia:Beacon as a “daylight museum.” Working closely with artist Robert Irwin, Dia devised a masterplan to create a twenty-first century museum building that retained the original character of the building. For the exterior setting, Irwin designed seasonally-changing gardens. In keeping with Dia’s history of single-artist, site-related presentations, each gallery was designed specifically for the presentation of one artist’s work. Examples include Dan Flavin’s series of fluorescent light “Monuments to V. Tatlin;” Joseph Beuys’ mixed-media installations such as Fond III/3 (1979) and Fond IV/4 (1979); Richard Serra’s Torqued Ellipses (2007); and Michael Heizer’s North, East, South, West (1967/2002).


Directions: Meet the Tour Wrangler at the designated meeting point near the Registration Desk, Promenade West, on the Hilton Hotel's second floor at 9:00 AM to walk together to Grand Central. We will be taking a Metro North train from Grand Central that departs at 9:43 AM and arrive at 11:24 AM in Beacon. The train back will depart at 3:12 PM and return to New York at 4:41 PM.


Lunch will be included. Participants may select from the choices offered under Option Two of the Homespun Dia:Beacon Café Boxed Lunch Menu: https://dia.qi-cms.com/media/_file/webpdfs/dia-cafe-boxed-lunch-options-2017.pdf. Participants will be contacted directly about their choice by February 5, 2018.

Advocating for Ourselves: Negotiation Skills and Closing the Gender Pay Gap: Sponsor - Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library, Yale University
Negotiation is a critical skill for any professional, but by and large, library professionals are not taught how to negotiate for increased salary and benefits, and much of the resources available only tangentially apply to library contexts. Another key reason why negotiation training is needed is that a majority of library professionals are women (85% of ARLIS/NA members, as shown by the recent Census of Art Information Professionals).
 
This workshop will be led by a trained facilitator through the American Association of University Women (AAUW). It combines aspects of their Start Smart workshop series and their Work Smart series to offer targeted resources to those who are just starting out or who are contemplating promotion, counter offers, or other negotiated benefits. Content will include market research strategies, persuasive language, and other key negotiation tactics. There will be hands-on activities, role-playing and other active learning exercises incorporated into the learning content.




AAUW speakers: 
Jane Pendergast
Roli Wendorf
 
After the AAUW content, there will be a panel composed of ARLIS/NA members in various work environments and stages in their career, who will share their negotiation stories and tactics they’ve learned.




ARLIS/NA Member Panelists:
Stacy Brinkman, facilitator
Kasia Leousis
Emilee Mathews
Ann Roll
Heather Slania
 
Takeaways include an informational packet provided by AAUW, key statistics from the recent Census of Art Information Professionals, and a literature review of relevant articles and books.

From the Margins to the Center: Cultivating a Critical, Reflective, and Radical Practice in Art Librarianship
"When education is the practice of freedom, students are not the only ones who are asked to share, to confess." - bell hooks, Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom


This four hour workshop is intended to give participants practical tools to develop a critical, reflective and radical practice in their librarianship. The four facilitators each have an ever-evolving critical practice that in many ways predate their roles as librarians and see critical practice as underlying their work within library instruction, digital initiatives, programming, collection development, and research.


Workshop facilitators will lead participants through hands-on activities that consider each individual's experiences (professional and personal), experiences of their patrons, and activities that support social justice - or the idea of education as the practice of freedom - within their community. The activities and conversations of the workshop will be created with all levels of audience members in mind. No prior knowledge or experiences are required to participate. We aim for the workshop to be an open, inclusive, and welcoming environment for difficult conversations, personal and professional growth, as well as a bit of creativity.


We are offering this workshop as a #critlib event, and this workshop also supports the Research and Information Services Section’s (RISS) goal to model critical and reflective practice in art librarianship to encourage creativity and positive change in our community.

Born-digital and Other E-journals in Art History: Crossing Boundaries Among Art Historians, Editors, and Librarians
Note: This session will be recorded and made accessible after the conference in the ARLIS/NA Learning Portal.


E-journals have existed for about three decades. They were pioneered by the sciences and social sciences, but for various reasons, some more valid than others, the arts and humanities were slower to catch on. In the field of art history, in particular, a major retardant was the need to establish protocols governing permissions and licenses for reproducing high-quality color images in perpetuity on the internet.


Today, the e-publishing of art history journals has become an accepted practice, yet it is certainly not the standard. Key challenges remain: how to adapt traditional print journals to digital formats, and how to take full advantage of the possibilities the digital medium has to offer; how to index and archive e-journals, and how to fund them, especially open-access journals that are born digital.


This round-table brings together art historians, editors, and librarians involved in different aspects of journal e-publishing. Interactive in format, the session will address questions about content, format, access, archiving, and new possibilities in the digital publishing realm. The session will begin with short presentations by the panelists about their experiences in e-publishing, highlighting lessons learned and future challenges to be addressed. The second half of the panel will open the floor to the audience for comments, questions, ideas, and information sharing, so a larger cooperative experience can be shared by all.


Presentations:
Elizabeth L. Block, “The Art History Journal Unbound: An Editor’s Perspective on an Evolving Readership”
Martina Droth, “Creating a Born-digital Journal for Art History: Objectives, Challenges, and Lessons”
Alexandra Provo, “Indexing for Access: How Librarians Can Help Situate E-journals Online”

New Voices in the Profession
Returning for its twelfth year, New Voices in the Profession provides professionals new to art librarianship or visual resources the opportunity to present topics from exceptional coursework, such as a master's thesis, or topics with which they are engaged early in their professional life. New professionals are defined as either students in MLIS or Master's programs leading to a career in art librarianship or visual resources, or those within five years of Master's level study. For many, this is their first professional speaking engagement.


This panel began at the ARLIS/NA 2006 Annual Conference in Banff and has since received wide attention and praise. Topics presented reveal new ideas as well as different ways of thinking about established concepts. Speakers give the conference attendees a glimpse of academic interests and current discourses of the newest ARLIS/NA members. The New Voices session is organized by the Professional Development Committee, ArLiSNAP, the Gerd Muehsam Award Committee, and the Sotheby's Institute of Art Research Award Committee.

Reaching Out and Showing Off: Exhibitions and Collections in Academic Libraries - Sponsored by IvoryPress
As libraries strive to connect users with resources, this panel offers different ways to highlight library materials and connections by discussing a variety of projects.

Jolene de Verges and Beverly Mitchell will talk about the development of a one-year curatorial fellowship program for Hamon’s Hawn Gallery where the exhibits encourage critical discourse with its community. The fellowship offers a career-launching curatorial opportunity for recent graduates to assume a curatorial position. They will discuss challenges and successes of the program and how to use this programming to engage the community.

Emilee Mathews will discuss approaches to foregrounding collections with outreach techniques. To increase constituent awareness and enfranchisement, Mathews piloted strategies such as open houses, gamified reference hours, proactive user feedback, and special collections pop-up libraries. The talk will address planning and assessment of these collection outreach methods.

Carolina Hernandez and Sara DeWaay will discuss the inaugural year of sharing collections outside of the library. By connecting with faculty and events around campus, their pop-up cart brings relevant collections to students, supporting their academic needs and aiming to reach traditionally under-represented groups and specific fields of study. They will talk about the challenges and strengths of the program, assessment, and goals.

Presentations:

Design Thinking for Libraries: strategies, tools and a case study
Libraries often rely on traditional, hierarchical and linear methods to solve problems. Originating in the discipline of art, design thinking is a series of overlapping processes including inspiration, ideation and implementation that can be used as a fresh approach to solve problems in libraries. This session will address the principles of design thinking and their role in planning for library services.

Rebecca Barham and Susan Smith, from the University of North Texas, will focus on elements from the designer's toolkit such as Visualization, Mind Mapping, Rapid Prototyping and Learning Launch. They will provide examples of how a user-centered approach can transform library services, products, and spaces.

Deb Verhoff will present a case study on the design of a new Library of Inspiration for Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center. The initiative brings together: a global collection of art; an archive documenting new works created on site; the archives of artist Robert Wilson; and a supporting research collection. The design firm, Squint/Opera was hired to develop a digital master plan and prototype for the library’s user interface. Working with professional designers yielded tangible, visual analysis of collections and their points of intersection. Focus groups and beta testing refined new tools to support creative research. At a place created for artistic experimentation, Watermill continues to iterate and ask the driving question: What could a library meant to inspire artists be?

Strategic Library Exhibitions: Engagement, Outreach, and Innovation
Libraries are increasingly turning to exhibitions to engage their patrons. Exhibitions have the potential for offering unique and exciting opportunities for creating meaningful connections between libraries and select communities. In this session, panelists will discuss library exhibition outreach and engagement from various perspectives. Session highlights include discussions on faculty collaborations of promoting collections through exhibitions, building an exhibition program from the ground up, and strategies to enhance curriculum through diverse exhibits and embedding those exhibitions into the classroom. Collaborations and partnerships for exhibit-related programming will also be discussed. We hope attendees will learn from our experiences and insights in organizing library exhibitions and take away specific examples they can incorporate into their future exhibition programs.

The Labor of Curiosity: Expanded Practices of Artists and Librarians - Sponsored by IvoryPress
During this session, we share reflections on the project, I’m Wondering if You Can Help me With Something? This correspondence-based studio research project explores what it means to help another person with a question, and to receive help with a question. How do our own practices shift when we labor for someone else’s curiosity? How are our practices shaped by the help we receive?

We invited artists and artist-librarians to help one another with questions and curiosities they each had. We posed the question, what would it be like to give and receive help in the form of an object, image, or text? Artists were not paired, rather, they were part of a chain of service where Tessa helps Marc, who helps Rachel, etc. Marc has a question, which he shares with Tessa. Tessa responds by mailing drawings, a letter, objects, something to read, etc. All the while, Marc is laboring for Rachel. All correspondence takes place via snail mail in order to cultivate a contemplative pace, anticipation, and a space for physical objects that engage all the senses.

The questions we pose are not meant to be fully answered. As we explore diverse modes of inquiry and response, we come to reside in ambiguity, where new territories for engagement, and new visual and verbal language can emerge. We will share how our practices as artists and librarians intersected with one another, and lead a discussion among audience members about curiosity, creative labor, and the boundaries of art librarianship.

Information Competencies for Students in Design Disciplines: Revisions & Critical Updates
What does it mean to be information competent in the fields art, architecture, or design? What are the learning outcomes a student in these disciplines should have upon graduation? In 2007, ARLIS/NA published the Information Competencies for Students in Design Disciplines which provided a framework for information literacy in our field. Considering the growth of new design fields and advances in information literacy instruction, a Research and Information Services Section team has been revising and re-envisioning the 2007 report.
In this working session, we will present our early draft which incorporates new guiding documents from our field including the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy and the ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, plus discipline specific frameworks and guidelines. We are looking for active participation in shaping this document, including feedback and further contribution from ARLIS/NA members who would like to volunteer to develop additional art and design competencies in 2018.

Different by Design-How Art Librarians are Undertaking User Experience
In the last decade, user centered design and user experience (UX) practitioners have become increasingly important in the process of creating useful, intuitive interfaces. In libraries, UX work is often left to librarians themselves. In a paper about UX librarians, this session’s moderator Craig MacDonald finds that they “share a user-centered mindset and many common responsibilities covering user research, usability testing, and space/service assessments.” This session will feature presentations from five libraries and museums that have undertaken UX work in the context of designing library websites and tools. From the SVA Library, Phoebe Stein and David Pemberton will discuss the creation of a brand new library website and picture collection database through all stages of design and implementation. Matthew Garklavs from the Bard Graduate Center Library will speak about their experience with creating a customized discovery system using open-source software. Kaitlin Springmier will present her synthesis of research findings, design standards, and Google Analytics to apply UX standards to LibGuides at the University of Chicago. From the Getty Research Institute, Susan Flanagan will talk about their working group’s process for redesigning and testing their Primo discovery layer. Nick Curotto from the Virginia Museum of Fine Art will discuss his role on the institution’s core team redesigning the VMFA’s fine art, rare book, and archive collections on one website.

Presentations:
Phoebe Stein and David Pemberton, “Continuous Design: The SVA Library's Iterative Website”
Matthew Garklavs, “Form ever follows function: Takeaways From Redesigning a Library Discovery System”
Kaitlin Springmier, “The User Isn't Broken: Applying User Experience Design to Library Guides”

Finding a Better Balance: Personal and Institutional Solutions to the Contemporary Work/Life Crisis in Libraries, Archives, and Museums
Note: This session will be recorded and made accessible after the conference in the ARLIS/NA Learning Portal.


This session features four speakers on the topic of establishing family-friendly policies in libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs). Despite having a high percentage of female professionals, LAM workplaces have been slow to embrace flexible work schedules and policies that accommodate working parents. While this may be attributable to the place-based nature and service environment of library work, it reflects the larger crisis in the US workplace wherein full-time, linear career trajectories are a frequent mismatch for the non-nuclear, single-parent, and dual-earner households. The speakers, including librarians and work/life policy leaders from outside LAM professions, contextualize this work-life crisis and discuss topics like flexible work schedules, parental leave, infant-friendly work environments, and other factors that would create more inclusive work environments for employees at cultural and educational institutions. The session will also chart the current state of work/life policy in the United States and Canada and introduce practical strategies for employees and supervisors to advocate for more family-friendly work policies. Discussions will consider structural solutions within the workplace that re-align institutional policy and culture with the needs of the contemporary LAM worker.


This session is organized by the Art Librarian Parents and Caregivers SIG.

Pushing the Boundaries: Teaching and Learning outside the Classroom
This 90-minute panel session will explore ways in which art librarians have broadened their concept of information literacy instruction to develop teaching and learning opportunities outside of the traditional library classroom. As Lorelei Rutledge and Sarah LeMire argue in their recent article, "Broadening Boundaries: Opportunities for Information Literacy Instruction Inside and Outside the Classroom," expanded notions of teaching and learning that go beyond standard instruction environments can promote increased student engagement with information literacy in the curriculum (2017). From participation in critiques to studio visits to voluntary and informal workshops, panelists will share how these out-of-classroom experiences encourage deeper connections between information literacy and the creative process.

Exhibitor Lightning Round - Session 1
We are offering a chance for vendors and sponsors to give a 10-minute presentation to conference attendees during the end-of-day exhibit breaks on Monday, February 26 and Tuesday, February 27. This is not intended to be a sales pitch but rather an informational presentation, and can be product demonstrations, question & answer format, or training opportunities. We discourage you from discussing pricing during your sessions; instead focus on the aspects of your resources that are relevant to librarians in attendance. The session will be part of the schedule and is not to be confused with the program presentations [e.g. invited speakers or reviewed presentations].


These sessions will be timed by a moderator. We will schedule up to 5 presentations during each 60 minute time slot, with time for questions and answers at the end. As an additional option an ARLIS/NA conference team member will be happy to staff your exhibit table during your presentation time.

Accessing Visual Culture: Deconstructing the Intellectual and Physical Challenges of Making Visual Content Accessible for Researchers
In this panel discussion, we’ll look at a variety of perspectives on the inherent questions that visual culture raises in terms of research. How do we define and talk about areas of visual culture, particularly when the culture changes over relatively short periods of time, or falls outside of typical academic paradigms? What can libraries do to make these materials discoverable for researchers? What does the metadata look like and how can it be created en masse? Furthermore, how can librarians educate researchers using visual culture, both within the arts disciplines and beyond?

Through the use of critical inquiry and case studies, each of the three presentations will tackle an aspect of these difficult questions. From understanding, processing and analyzing graffiti, to the digitization and cataloging of a collection of tear sheets from the Down Modern Graphic History Library, to instruction librarians and archivists joining forces to teach visual literacy to non-majors, each set of speakers will present ideas that can build upon each other to holistically address the challenges that accessibility of visual culture presents for libraries and researchers.

Presentations:
Jerrold Shiroma, “Piecebooks, flicks, and burners -- Talking about graffiti”
Skye Lacerte and Andrea Degener, “Revealing Visual Culture: Digitizing Modern Illustrated Periodical Tear Sheets in the Walt Reed Illustration Archive”
Peggy Keeran, Jennifer Bowers, Katherine Crowe, and Kristen Korfitzen, “Taking Visual Materials ‘Out of Bounds:’ Using Our Visual Collections to Teach Information Literacy Outside the Arts Curriculum”

Everything Old is New: Metadata Migration and Enrichment
Metadata cleanup is always a difficult, time consuming, and costly task. Reconciling metadata with Linked Open Data (LOD) authorities and other authorities, especially for personal names and organizations, can make this task even more difficult. This session will address the challenges associated with legacy and authority metadata, as well as new processes and tools required to normalize and enrich such data for facilitating innovative models of information access and discovery.

Two presentations will focus on the Getty Provenance Index Remodel project, a three-year project to model and transform the Getty Provenance Index databases, a resource for provenance, collecting and art markets studies, into Linked Open Data. Melissa Gill and Jon Ward will focus on processes for reconciling Getty Provenance Index data with the Getty Vocabularies as part of the LOD release. Kelly Davis will provide a deep dive into the practical challenges faced when re-structuring legacy data. For the third presentation, David Lowe will discuss the Photographers' Identities Catalog at the New York Public Library and his research reconciling photographers with other large data sets and controlled vocabularies, enhancing the biographical data, and publishing the catalog online.

Presentations:
Melissa Gill and Jonathan Ward, “Linking Across the Getty: Reconciling the Getty Provenance Index and the Getty Vocabularies”
Kelly Davis, “Information Icebergs: Metadata in Legacy Projects”
David Lowe, “Photographic research and the Photographers' Identities Catalog”

The Future of the Catalogue Raisonné: Artist Legacy, Accessibility, Preservation of Data and Distribution
Problem/Solution:
A catalogue raisonné is the definitive, comprehensive, and annotated compilation of all the known works of an artist. Traditionally produced in book form, catalogues raisonnés have posed a dilemma for students and scholars. Because the information in a catalogue raisonné is constantly in flux, printed catalogues raisonnés cannot achieve both completeness and accuracy. Artifex Press was conceived to resolve this problem - to offer a solution that is more accessible, more flexible, more time-and-cost efficient, and above all more accurate and up to date than the traditional printed counterpart. While continuing to adhere to strict guidelines for catalogue raisonné scholarship and compilation, the digital format also expands the definition of what a catalogue raisonné can be. The inclusion of video and audio content and virtually unlimited documentary materials can broaden the context through which an artist’s work is understood. The digital catalogue raisonné is the future of archival record-keeping for artists and their estates.

Presentation:
  • General introduction to Artifex, including very basic outline of the subscription service - 5-10 minutes
  • Presentation of Close and Martin catalogues - 10 minutes
  • Introduction to the complexities of Sol LeWitt - 5-10 minutes
  • Preview of LeWitt catalogue - 10 minutes
  • Return to subscription service and future plans for Artifex - 10 minutes

Library Collections and Object-based Learning in the Art and Design Curriculum
Increasingly, art and design libraries are broadening the scope of their collections to include objects - material products, color samples, fashion construction samples, natural history specimens - to support their curricula. This session will present both the research and practice of object-based collections.


Lareese Hall’s "The Exotic Familiar: The Edna Lawrence Nature Lab and the Web of Making and Knowledge" focuses on the history, development, management, and use of a natural history collection in the art and design school setting. Rebecca Price will examine the importance of tactile literacy and how it informs design practice in her paper "Tactile Literacy: Vital Skills in a Digital Age." Jen Wong, in her presentation "De-Objectifying Collections" will discuss the limits of tactile information in object-based collections (OBC) and the value of faculty partnership and course integration in giving objects a relevant educational context. Christopher Jones will discuss building a materials collection in "Creativity & Materials Collections: Supporting Arts Based Research through Haptic Learning." Annemarie Haar explores collaborative collection-building with faculty in "Object-based Collections Supporting Art + Design Pedagogy."


This panel was organized by the Materials SIG.

NDSR Art: Developing Cross-Institutional Strategies for Sustained Access to GLAM Assets
The National Digital Stewardship Residency program for art information professionals (NDSR Art) is designed to raise awareness and start timely conversations across communities of practice. From digital curators, conservators, registrars, and content specialists, to librarians and archivists, the time is now for all of us to come together to preserve our fragile digital assets in the GLAM community.

In this session, four residents and hosts representing Minneapolis Institute of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale Center for British Art will present on the progress to date on their digital stewardship projects.

These projects will be discussed as examples of what others in the ARLIS/NA community can do to address digital stewardship collaboratively across institutions. They address challenges in the conservation and preservation of time-based media, long-term access to digital publications and student artworks, and strategies for capturing and sustaining born-digital art collection-related records.

More information about NDSR Art can be found at http://ndsr-pma.arlisna.org/.

Solo Problem Solvers: Finding a Voice and Building Resources as a Solo Professional
The world of solo art librarianship is, perhaps, the most diverse subset of the field, and one that is uniquely challenging. Whether in danger of their needs being lost in a sea of competitive departments, balancing a position that continually absorbs a panoply of responsibilities demanding niche expertise, or merely being confronted with austere budgets, solo librarians frequently find themselves needing to re-articulate their role and advocate for needed resources for themselves and the users they serve. For the solo professional, resourcefulness and resilience are key.

Building on the well-received Solo Art Librarians Special Interest Group panel at ARLIS/NA 2017, this session will share successful scaled-down strategies, with topics encompassing the diversity of solo librarianship: from approaches to advocacy and resource-sharing, to work/life balance and mentorship. The session will include presenters representing an array of institutional settings and attendant challenges, spanning academic, museum, and commercial gallery contexts, and serving users ranging from local to global. While geared to the special needs of solo professionals, these lightning talks will provide guidance to any art librarian who wears many hats, providing guidance for achieving success despite personnel and budgetary challenges.

Presentations: Advocacy: (re)Defining the Role
Traci Timmons, "No Need to Plead: Advocacy and the Solo Librarian"
Arielle Cohen, "The Pseudo-Solo Librarian: An Art Gallery Librarian in a Global Gallery System"
Cindy Frank, "Life Comes First: A Solo Librarian’s Balance of Life and Work"

Thinking Outside the (Library) Box: Using Your Librarian Skills for the Public Good
Note: This session will be recorded and made accessible after the conference in the ARLIS/NA Learning Portal.


While we teach that "authority is constructed and contextual," librarianship typically relies on institutions that may not welcome critique of their power structures or dynamics. Working outside or between these institutions can create dynamic ways to help build a more equitable world. There are many successful examples of this radical library work, such as the panelists we bring together from AfroCROWD, Art+Feminism, Black Lunch Table, Interference Archive, and Radical Reference. These organizations’ missions touch on Wikipedia editing, para-institutional reference and instruction work, public programming and non-institutional archiving. This panel explores how librarians can decenter the institution and create spaces, physical and virtual, that are active sites of resistance and activism. Attendees can expect to leave with a greater knowledge of how this work, which has happened on the margins of our field for a long time, can relate to their library practice both within and outside the institution. They can also expect to get constructive advice on community organizing, outreach and marketing, and diversity and equity planning, all of which will help them cultivate a social justice oriented practice and help with the practical, everyday machinations of librarianship.


Following bell hooks’ model for critical pedagogy, this panel will be a guided, open-ended discussion between a number of librarians, archivists and information activists who have been doing this work both in and outside of the traditional institutional strongholds of librarianship. Topics may include but not be limited to: awareness of intersectional identities in library work, creating institutional partnerships, securing funding through grants and crowdsourcing, and partnering with community organizations.

Common Ground: Provenance Research Agendas in Libraries, Archives and Museums
Note: This session will be recorded and made accessible after the conference in the ARLIS/NA Learning Portal.


This session will provide useful and precise information regarding a wide range of provenance research endeavors in museums, research libraries, archives, and academic institutions. This includes the investigation of original works of art, works recorded in the archives of dealers and collectors and the invaluable tools utilized in the research process. Rodica Tanjala Krauss will discuss a unique manuscript log from a major auction house that will serve as a valued resource for art history and interdisciplinary scholars, for art dealers and connoisseurs, for collectors and artists, and for the research of art market politics. Lynn Rother will provide practical knowledge regarding the methodology, resources and, and challenges of Nazi-era provenance research in art museums. Louis Adrean will discuss a National Endowment for the Arts grant funded project that examines the provenance history of collections and educational collaborations at the Ingalls Library, The Cleveland Museum of Art. Philip Dombowsky will provide an overview of the Max Stern Art Restitution Project and will present case studies to illustrate the complexities of researching the provenance of Nazi-era looted art. Catherine Larkin will report on a Samuel H. Kress funded digital project to provide electronic access to information and updated provenance on William Randolph Hearst's art purchases, including some objects unintentionally acquired from forced sales during the Nazi Era.

Libraries Resist
As a dynamic organization with international affiliates, ARLIS/NA is committed to diversity and inclusion within the art, design, and librarianship professions. However, recent United States Presidential Executive Orders and proposed budget cuts are an obstruction to creative expression, cultural enrichment, lifelong learning, and are a threat to the diverse communities that libraries serve. The Public Policy Committee presents a session on acts of political and social resistance in libraries. Such action on the part of librarians is in harmony with ARLIS/NA Core Values, which recognize the central importance of the visual arts and cultural heritage in enriching the lives of a diverse audience. This session will highlight efforts to resist the negative impacts of the current political and social environment through library programming, instruction and policies.

Presentations:
Anna Boutin and Rhonda Kauffman, “Activism at MIT Libraries”
David Pemberton and Rebecca Clark, “From Anxiety to Engagement: Resistance at the SVA Library”

Photography and Books across Boundaries in Art Libraries, Archives, and Museum Collections - Sponsored by IvoryPress
Photography, malleable in its technical processes and methods of dissemination, has been in a state of evolution since its invention in the mid-19th century. It found a natural home in books almost immediately, and by the early 1840s, photographers, publishers, and distributors were grappling with these new books; self-publishing, mixing media, incorporating new technology into publications, creating materials that could appeal to scientists, politicians, and artists in a single volume, were all experimented with during this period and ever since. As publishing costs increased, photographers tried and failed to have their work published. In parallel with photography itself, photo-based books – both the actual photographically illustrated books from the 1840s and the creative practices that shape the production of photobooks and zines in 2018 – have changed and found success while embracing new technologies and resources on hand. Photography books have traveled across institutional boundaries as they increasingly became a medium for documentation, as well as fine art forms, and even self-reflexive objects.

This panel will address how art librarians are working with these objects today through case studies, a moderated discussion, and questions from the audience. How are art librarians to handle these complex materials? What tools can we use to provide access and promote them? Can the use of digital humanities tools be leveraged to compensate for the loss of the haptic experience when interacting with these objects? What are the implications for access, research, and dissemination of these resources for the history of photography and interdisciplinary studies? What can we learn from the histories of photography and photography in books that can help us to be good stewards of publications ranging from the incunabula of the medium to the publications still to come in formats that haven’t yet been invented?

Presentations:
Isotta Poggi, “The Incunabula of Photography and the Internet Archive”
Emily Weirich, “Publishing Edward Weston’s Daybooks Again: Photography, Text, and Objects United Online”

The Outcome of the ARTFRAME Project, a Domain-Specific BIBFRAME Exploration - Sponsor: Casalini Libri, Fiesole, Italy
Columbia University Libraries’ ARTFRAME Project is a domain-specific linked open data (LOD) initiative that focuses on the metadata practices of art libraries and museums. ARTFRAME is part of a $1.5 million Mellon grant awarded to the Linked Data for Production (LD4P) project, which is led by Stanford University. In summer 2016, the Cataloging Advisory Committee (CAC) of ARLIS/NA was invited to join the ARTFRAME project, with other major art institutions such as the Clark Art Institute and the Prints and Photographs Division at the Library of Congress. The ARTFRAME project has a dual purpose: firstly, to explore the suitability of the Library of Congress Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) for the description of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional art objects; and secondly, to develop an extension to BIBFRAME that caters to the specific needs of the art cataloging and metadata community. As the Mellon grant comes to an end in March 2018, this session will give the speakers an opportunity to inform ARLIS members about the outcome of the project.

The session will consist of three presentations followed by a moderated Q&A period. Jason Kovari’s presentation will examine the larger context of the various domain-specific explorations of BIBFRAME extension development, with particular focus on the overlap between art works and rare materials held in libraries. Melanie Wacker and Amber Billey will then discuss the specifics of the ARTFRAME project including its initial goals, timeline, community outreach, outcome, as well as tools used and lessons learned throughout the project. Finally, Marie-Chantal L’Ecuyer-Coelho will explore the contributions of ARLIS/NA's CAC as a community partner to the ARTFRAME project, highlighting its role in the process of delineating the requirements of art descriptive metadata, and developing an ontology extension suited to the specific characteristics of art objects.

Exhibitor Lightning Round - Session 2
We are offering a chance for vendors and sponsors to give a 10-minute presentation to conference attendees during the end-of-day exhibit breaks on Monday, February 26 and Tuesday, February 27. This is not intended to be a sales pitch but rather an informational presentation, and can be product demonstrations, question & answer format, or training opportunities. We discourage you from discussing pricing during your sessions; instead focus on the aspects of your resources that are relevant to librarians in attendance. The session will be part of the schedule and is not to be confused with the program presentations [e.g. invited speakers or reviewed presentations].


These sessions will be timed by a moderator. We will schedule up to 5 presentations during each 60 minute time slot, with time for questions and answers at the end. As an additional option an ARLIS/NA conference team member will be happy to staff your exhibit table during your presentation time.


Session 2 Presentations by:

Big Changes, Big Moves, Smaller Footprints: Strategies for Rightsizing the Onsite Print Collection for the 21st Century Library—The Session
Whether it’s in a brand new building or a redesigned space, today’s library is increasingly about public, user-focused spaces and a smaller footprint for the book stacks. For libraries of every size, from small branch libraries to large research libraries, the trend towards reduced space for onsite print collections has been the impetus for innovative collections analysis projects, creative plans for remote or shared storage, and renewed interest in consortia agreements. This session highlights some of the different strategies and solutions that librarians have developed for achieving smaller, more focused onsite collections, new collection analysis strategies and tools, transformation to digital collections, and shared print storage projects. Case studies from art, architecture, and college libraries will illustrate a range of collection strategies in practice.


Those interested in this topic may wish to sign up for the companion workshop, “Big Changes, Big Moves, Smaller Footprints: Strategies for Rightsizing the Onsite Print Collection for the 21st Century Library—The Workshop,” which will feature in-depth information about collections analysis, hands-on experimentation with data visualization tools, and a tour of Hunter College’s Leon & Toby Cooperman Library, which has undergone major space changes, and the Zabar Art Library.

Boundless: Digital Publishing and Online Scholarship
This session brings together four presentations that examine the future of digital media and publications in library collections, and spotlight innovative student/faculty and interdepartmental digital humanities collaborations.


Hannah Bennett and Coral Salomón will present their research on the future of art and digital publishing, from metadata to fugitive platforms, drawn from interviews with publishers, artists, and institutions.


In Fall 2017, Columbia and Barnard students created a digital critical edition of Journal des dames et des modes (1797–1804), centered on rare fashion plates held at The Morgan Library & Museum. Alex Gil and Anne Higonnet will share results of this pedagogical and digital prototype.


The Fashion History Timeline is an open-access online research hub created by students and faculty at The Fashion Institute of Technology. Presenting from a project-management perspective, Molly Schoen will highlight best practices and offer guidance on creating—and funding—digital exhibitions and research guides at any institution.


The Historic Urban Environments Lab (HUE/ND) is a collaboration between the School of Architecture and the Architecture Library at the University of Notre Dame. Jennifer Parker and Selena Anders will reveal HUE/ND's evolution, from university partnerships to multiplatform projects, and detail how digitization, mobile apps, audiovisual content, and 3D modeling enhance the curriculum and enable students and faculty to access archival materials remotely.


Presentations:
Hannah Bennett and Coral Salomón, "Digital Fugitives: New Frontiers in 21st Century Art Publishing & Production"
Alex Gil and Anne Higonnet, "Style Revolution: A Prototype Edition for Instruction and Online Scholarship"
Molly Schoen, "The Fashion History Timeline: Launching a New Digital Resource"

Copyright Assessment in the Trenches: Workflow, Tools, Metadata, and more
How do different institutions assess copyright? What workflows are in place? How is copyright indicated for end users? What tools are institutions/art libraries using to assess copyright? This moderated panel discussion will offer strategies for copyright assessment and workflows pertinent to special collections and international publications. Our panelists will bring pragmatic perspectives on copyright evaluation from a museum art library, a public research library, a university copyright advisory office, and a public university. Pain points for determining copyright presented by various formats, ownership issues, and digitization will be addressed through cases encountered by the panelists. Helpful tools and workflow strategies for moving forward, including widely available charts and resources, as well as software in beta for copyright determination will be shared. Lastly, we'll look at how various institutions are handling rights metadata.

U.S. Copyright Law and its exceptions relevant to libraries and archives, such as Section 107 (Fair Use), Section 108(h), and Section 104(a) will be part of the discussion. A review of this Copyright Quick Guide is recommended prior to attending the session.

Thinking Outside the Bounds of the Typical Library: A Spotlight on Three New York City-based Libraries and Archives
The LGBTQ Special Interest Group presents a combined session and panel discussion that showcases New York City-based libraries and archives that “think outside of the normal bounds of libraries” and have LGBTQ collections that support activism, initiate community engagement, and provide allyship in the form of programming.


It is essential that librarians keep up-to-date on activism that is taking place in libraries, archives and museums around the country. These speakers will discuss how their institutions are promoting activism and the importance of having a strong, factual voice in an era where falsehoods (“alt-facts”) are distributed by the government and other sources. Librarians who are interested in promoting LGBTQ programming and activism in their libraries or archives will find this session immensely valuable.


The panel will consist of four fifteen-minute presentations, allowing for a discussion with the audience at the end.

#artlibraries: Taking the Pulse of Social Media in Art Library Environments
A great deal of research has been conducted on the effects of digital culture and social media in museums and in libraries in general, but little has been done to evaluate the social media landscape specifically in art libraries. This session of lightning talks aims to fill that void by examining the application, impact and perception of social media in the art library community.  

Today, social media is embedded in countless aspects of our personal and professional lives, and is instrumental in the way we communicate with and view the world. As art librarians, how do we evaluate the results of our efforts? How can we develop policies, guidelines and strategic goals that ensure a productive use of these tools? And what are the best practices for increasing awareness of our collections? Speakers include a museum librarian, an academic librarian, a special collections librarian and an art and design college librarian who offer a variety of perspectives on social media in art library environments. Additionally, we will hear presentations on the results of surveys: one assessing the overall impact of social media in art libraries, the other-conducted by a content producer for an arts research institution-examining the social media habits of art historians.

Presentations:
Chantal Sulkow, “Is Anybody Out There? Measuring the Impact of Social Media Engagement in Art Library Environments”
William Blueher, “A Blog is not a Tweet is not a Gram is not a Pin: Creating Platform-Specific Social Media Policies”
Anna Simon, “How Much is 140 Characters Worth? How to Assess Your Library’s Social Media Efforts”
Jennifer Ferretti, “Our PR Problem Is Real: Social Media in the Context of Labor and Strategic Planning”

PHAROS: The Photo Archive Re-Imagined for Digital Art History: Sponsor - Frick Art Reference Library
PHAROS, The International Consortium of Photographic Archives, launched its website in June 2016. What is Pharos, and how will its goal to digitize 25 million photographs of art and architecture (with 30% available by 2020) effect the art information community? Gregory Most will provide context to photoarchives in a digital age and introduce the consortium. The Photo Archive of the Yale Center for British Art has a remarkable history from its beginnings to the recent digitization project that created digital surrogates for the majority of the collection. Kraig Binkowski will look at this latest project - the decisions surrounding it and how they were informed by the collection’s history and by the desire to align with the goals of the PHAROS consortium. Melissa Fournier will look at the YCBA Photo Archive and PHAROS through an intellectual property lens, touching on the IP and copyright issues that affect the entire consortium. Louisa Ruby will discuss how computer vision will enable discovery of an individual work of art in multiple iterations of photographs and will introduce how MARC data describing works of art is being mapped to CIDOC-CRM as it becomes Linked Open Data as well as the pros/cons of IIIF compliance. Lukas Klic will discuss the digitization program of the Berenson Photo Archive and show semantic enrichment using the CIDOC-CRM model and transformation to Linked Open Data will allow the collection to be interoperable with that of other PHAROS member institutions.

President’s Choice: "Moving from Diversity on Paper to Equity in Action"
A common thread throughout the conference has addressed the Society’s core values including diversity and inclusion, as well as advocacy for our profession, for our community and the arts. In this session, we’ll engage with the summary of data collected at the 2018 ARLIS/NA Leadership Institute and explore ways to embody empowerment toward personal and shared tools to design a proposal for next steps from the Society’s leadership. The session will be co-facilitated by Nasha Taylor and Melinda Brown who will guide us in inclusive and interactive methods for advocating for ourselves, our profession, and our communities.


Nasha Taylor's work centers on community building and empowerment towards self-realization.  She's trained in grassroots community organizing, youth leadership development, and nonprofit program management. She's played a lead role in initiatives to bridge the digital divide, promote media literacy, and design a poverty reduction pilot project.  The common thread through her more than 10 years of service and professional experiences is practicing reflective inquiry, for self and within relationships, to heal, harmonize, and build communities who learn, grow, and share. In previous roles, she helped to found the Binghamton Neighborhood Assemblies, Binghamton Youth Bureau, Philadelphia Youth Media Collaborative, Technology Learning Collaborative. Most recently she co-led the founding of the Binghamton-Broome Anti Poverty Initiative and helped introduce the first Collective Impact Conference to stimulate a cross-sector, inclusive economic development culture with equity at the center.  Nasha grew up in Binghamton, NY and earned her bachelor’s degree in Communications and Media at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. She's employed as a Program Manager at Year Up Greater Philadelphia to close the opportunity divide. Find Nasha online on LinkedIn @NashaTaylor or email nashataylor@gmail.com


Meeting Melinda Brown is meeting pure positive energy. She’s a speaker, trainer, executive, and expert in workforce development. Her passion is empowering people and teams, her impact optimizes systems, and her legacy is breaking cycles of poverty in minds and in communities. Melinda has taken her life from growing up in a low-income South Philadelphia neighborhood, to sought-after thought partner, business leader, entrepreneur, and teacher. As a talent developer, she knows how to build and lead teams through start-up, change management, revitalization and turnaround. Her professional partnership increases revenues for businesses through executive-level consultation, workshops, and events. Her current leadership pushes the opportunity movement forward by creating diversified teams and in-demand leadership across the business sector. Her results are proven in how she co-led Year Up to expand its professional training corps from Philadelphia to launch a new site in Wilmington, DE in partnership with a local college and one of the largest financial corporations in the United States. In responding to market needs, she’s piloting an innovative JAVA programming apprenticeship with national nonprofit and corporate partners for job growth. She is also appointed as an Official Member of the Forbes Nonprofit Leadership Council. Her advocacy for diversity, equity and inclusion can be seen with her inaugural membership in both the DiverseForce and Fels Institute Board Governance Program at University of Pennsylvania and the Committee for the Women’s Way Economic Security Initiative. Beyond Year Up, she’s the Founder and CEO for MB Legacies, LLC, a platform for motivational speaking and personal/professional development training.

Art and Architecture of the New York Subway System : A Guided Walking Tour - SOLD OUT
Website: http://anthonywrobins.com


New York couldn’t function without its vast labyrinth of a subway system, but art and architecture? Who knew? Yet from the beginning, the people who planned the subway’s construction considered it, in words actually written into the contract, a "great public work" worthy of attractive design, even of "beauty." Neglect on the one hand and renovation on the other have taken their toll, but the subway is still a place of art and architecture – from the stations and the power houses and the rolling stock, to the furniture, the signs, the maps, and even the advertisements. On this tour, we will ride the rails from the Battery to Midtown, and consider the three major phases of subway design: the original 1904 IRT, designed by Heins & LaFarge, the Dual Contracts extensions of the 'teens, and the modernistic Independent Line that opened in 1932 – with a peek at a ’70s redesign by Philip Johnson.


CBS listed this tour as one of "The 5 Best Art Walks In New York."


Author, lecturer, and tour leader, Anthony W. Robins has been guiding natives and visitors to the city’s wonders of steel and stone for more than twenty-five years. Anthony W. Robins researched and wrote Subway Style: 100 Years of Architecture and Design in the New York City Subway (Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 2004) issued by the New York Transit Museum on the 100th anniversary of the opening of the IRT. In 2017, the Guides Association of New York City honored him with the "Guiding Spirit" award.


Directions: Meet the Tour Wrangler at the designated meeting point near the Registration Desk, Promenade West, on the Hilton Hotel's second floor at 12:30 PM to travel together by subway. Tour participants are required to buy a loaded Metro Card in advance of the tour, so that the tour can remain on schedule. Trip travel will cost $8.25.
Accessibility: Please note that this tour requires a substantial amount of walking.


Maximum Participants: 29
Administrative Fee: $36

We are very pleased to announce the annual ARLIS/NA Conference Silent Auction! The theme for the 2018 conference is "Out of Bounds," reflective of the wide ranging culture of New York City. We are looking forward to an outstanding array of items for you to bid on in remembrance of your time in NYC


As in years past, the onsite silent auction will feature donated items from our generous chapters, members, and sponsors.

In addition, we will be hosting an online auction via Bidding Owl, to allow for both conference attendees and those who are unable to attend to bid for these same items on the web. The online auction will go live two weeks prior to the conference, so that all interested will be able to support the Society through their generous bids.


The proceeds from any sales will be returned to ARLIS/NA to support travel awards, membership, professional development, and other organizational initiatives.


Individuals and organizations, local or international, are welcome and encouraged to participate. See below for additional information about donating to the 2018 Silent Auction.


The Silent Auction will take place in the Exhibit Hall of the Midtown Hilton on Tuesday, February 27th, from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm, and Wednesday February 28th, from 9:30 am until 3:30 pm.

A Value Proposition: Understanding Distinctive, Special, and Archival Collections
This session explores value in distinctive, special, and archival collections. Speakers discuss building, understanding, or providing access to resources, recent interventions, and perceptions of collection value. Price will share her experience of initiating a house catalog collection at the Art, Architecture, & Engineering Library at the University of Michigan with an emphasis on crafting a collection development policy, the goal of which is to provide valuable and relevant regional content to scholars. Jones describes undertaking archival provenance research at the University of Pittsburgh’s Frick Fine Arts Library to create a workable and accessible dataset of the founding library collection that enables access, assessment and promotes teaching and learning. Aberle discusses creating a dataset for the University of Texas at Austin’s Architecture & Planning Library Special Collections to apply DH methodologies to understand collection development and description. Gottlieb-Miller presents a case study on making the invisible visible, arguing for ways to reinvent what stewardship looks like for historically marginalized collections in her work with the Kokomo Collection of Black Americana in the Menil Collection Library. González Palacios explores how the redesign of the Canadian Centre for Architecture website aims to blur the line between what the CCA produces and collects and how integrating multiple collections poses challenges and opportunities for discovery and access.

Presentations:
Rebecca Price, “Building a Collection from the Ground Up”
Kiana Jones, “The Pedagogical Value of Provenance Research in Rare Book Collections and ‘Heritage Libraries’: Re-discovering the First Collection at the Frick Fine Arts Library, University of Pittsburgh”
Jessica Aberle, “Turning the Catalog into Data at the Architecture and Planning Library, University of Texas at Austin”
Lauren Gottlieb-Miller, “Access and Stewardship: “Black Americana” in the Menil Collection Library”

Scope Drift - Blending and Rebranding in Visual Resources
In project management, "scope drift" describes the continuous expansion of the requirements, mission, and objectives of a project. Although often perceived as a negative, in the fields of art librarianship and visual resources, the drifting of professional scope can be both a force driving innovation and an indicator of change. Following up on the successful session on this topic sponsored by the Visual Resources Division (VRD) at the 2016 ARLIS/NA+VRA conference in Seattle and the 2017 ARLIS/NA Conference in New Orleans, this session will present case studies in which the scope of roles and facilities were blended and expanded constructively.

Stimulating Creativity in Practice: Incorporating Creative Practice into the Academic Library
Beyond their traditional offerings, contemporary art libraries often act as incubators of new ideas and creative energy. This session is an open dialog with the audience that consists of six panelists presenting on and discussing art making, creativity, and how these processes can be brought into art librarianship practices and how they can re-energize and invigorate creative thinking and learning. Panelists represent a variety of perspectives and work at a range of institutions: art and design school libraries, a liberal arts college library, a large university, and a research center. Projects and processes we will discuss include collaborations with art classes and other groups outside the library, zine workshops, book displays, altered book events and exhibits, and holding art-making events in the traditionally academic setting of a library space.

The Indispensable Art Museum Library: Challenges and Solutions for Change - Sponsor: Michael Weintraub, Inc
The Museum Division of ARLIS/NA recently released the white paper titled “State of Art Museum Libraries 2016” that outlines the role and challenges facing art museum libraries. These libraries provide authoritative research services, and they develop, organize, promote, and safeguard resources. As such, they are at the heart of delivering museums’ missions. Despite these important responsibilities, many art museum libraries face increased pressures to validate the cost of collecting, housing, staffing, and maintaining physical resources and spaces.

Presenters will discuss the white paper, and findings that detail the state of the field in the context of specific institutions. Museum librarians will discuss their experiences in depth, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Ringling Museum of Art Library, and the Barnes Foundation.

The session also aims to connect librarians with new ideas for initiatives, advocacy, and problem solving to help strengthen their value proposition to their institution. Attendees will be invited to participate in generating strategies and suggestions to discuss long-term approaches to sustainability. The session will conclude with a facilitated discussion and idea generation to inform a future toolkit for managing challenges.

Presentations:
Anne Evenhaugen, “State of Art Museum Libraries 2016”
Elisa Hansen, “A State Museum and a State University: A Successful Partnership”
Heather Winter, “Milwaukee Art Museum Research Center, A Century in the Making”

  • How have you used your skills as a librarian in retirement?
  • What are you able to do as a retired person that you didn’t have time for when you were working?
  • What keeps you engaged in ARLIS? What compels you to attend conferences?
  • How can this ARLIS group support the goals of the Society?

We expect plenty of time for conversation and socializing, with the gathering informally lasting until time to depart for convocation.

New Haven Day Trip: A Tour of Yale Art Libraries and Museums - SOLD OUT
Websites:
Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library: http://web.library.yale.edu/arts
Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library: http://beinecke.library.yale.edu


A Day trip to Yale's campus in New Haven will include private tours of both the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library and the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library. The Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library is one of the world's leading research libraries and serves as the primary collection for the study of art, architecture, and drama at Yale. Attendees will get to see selections from Arts Library Special Collections, which features artists' books and volumes on the book arts, fine printing, typography, and illustration, as well as archival materials and thesis projects from the Schools of Art, Architecture, and Drama. The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is one of the world's largest libraries devoted entirely to rare books and manuscripts and is Yale's principal repository for literary archives, early manuscripts, and rare books. It is located in a stunning building with panes made out of very thin marble that filter in natural light and allow for rare materials to be exhibited without damage.


The Day Trip will also include free time to spend viewing the world class art collections at the Yale University Art Gallery or the Yale Center for British Art. The Tour will end with a modernist architecture tour of New Haven, which boasts buildings by Louis Kahn, Paul Rudolph and Eero Saarinen.


Directions: Meet the Tour Wrangler at the designated meeting point near the Registration Desk, Promenade West, on the Hilton Hotel's second floor at 8:15 AM to walk together to Grand Central. We will be taking a Metro North train from Grand Central that departs at 9:04 AM and arrive at 11:06 AM in New Haven. The train back will depart at 4:14 PM and return to New York at 6:20 PM. Please note that lunch is not included, but there are many restaurants and lunch spots right on campus.
Accessibility: This tour requires a substantial amount of walking.

Big Changes, Big Moves, Smaller Footprints: Strategies for Rightsizing the Onsite Print Collection for the 21st Century Library—The Workshop - SOLD OUT
Academic, museum, and art and design school libraries are all facing space issues as library spaces are being repurposed for user-centered research, teaching, and learning. Achieving these transformed spaces often means reducing the footprint of the onsite collection. Librarians from libraries of all types and sizes are engaging in collections analysis projects to make that happen.


The workshop includes two hours of active learning in the classroom and 1 ¼ hours touring Hunter College Libraries. Attendees will spend a focused two hours delving into sophisticated collection analysis strategies for art and architecture collections to tighten collections and reduce footprints. Workshop instructor Scott Stone will introduce attendees to the freely available data visualization software Tableau Public; demonstrate and lead attendees in cleaning raw item circulation data from a LMS; and then demonstrate and lead attendees in the creation of their own data visualizations using provided circulation data. The second part of the workshop will be a tour of Hunter College's Leon & Toby Cooperman Library which has undergone major space changes and Zabar Art Library. Strategies used to reduce the onsite collection, and the results in terms of both redesigned library space and collections use will be featured.


Ready to tackle projects big and small, attendees will leave the workshop confident in their ability to perform collection analysis, familiar with some of the digital products available, and more comfortable with space transformation.


Those interested in this topic may want to attend the proposed companion session, “Big Changes, Big Moves, Smaller Footprints: Strategies for Rightsizing the Onsite Print Collection for the 21st Century Library—The Session,” which will feature presentations that highlight strategies for collection analysis, collaborative print collecting, transformation to digital collections when appropriate, and case studies applying these methods.

How many photographic processes can you identify? Photographic Processes Identification, Preservation and Other Collection Management Tips Workshop from the Photography Collection at the New York Public Library - SOLD OUT
At the New York Public Library, the Photography Collection is a special collection, part of the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Division of Art, Prints and Photographs. It is comprised of over 500,000 photographs that include examples of almost every photographic process from daguerreotypes to digital imagery and inkjet prints. It also holds major collections such as the Farm Security Administration photographs; over 42,000 stereographs; 9/11 Photo Collection; Pageant of America photo archive and many more. During this workshop, we will examine at least 20 different photographic objects (in book form and loose prints) to show the different types of photographic processes from the beginning of photography (1839) to our most recent acquisitions representing contemporary processes. Participants are able to study the objects up-close, and be able to see different physical characteristics that make up each process. For materials that require closer examination, a mini microscope will be used (provided by NYPL). Many of the objects shown will include fine examples of early processes to the most obscure processes, that still elude conservators and historians today. Of course, there will also be more common processes (i.e. gelatin silver prints and albumen silver prints) found in many library and archival collections. Subject matter will focus on the diversity of the collection, as well as New York City scenes, people and the creators themselves.


'Take-aways' for participants:
  • Opportunity to see many different types of photographic processes, including negatives and photomechanical processes.
  • Learn about the diverse holdings of the Photography Collection, including a brief mention of the Art & Architecture collection, the Print Collection; the Spencer Collection of illustrated books and fine bindings, and the Picture Collection that are also part of the Wallach Division.
  • Best practices on how to preserve photographic materials, including negatives.
  • Best practices on physical arrangement and description, based on the Photography Collection at NYPL.
  • Best practices on how to physically handle different types and formats of photographs.
  • Resource guides on the history of photography; photobooks; photographic processes; photographic preservation (Bibliography handout will be supplied).
  • Informal discussion among participants and workshop host to talk and ask questions about their own photographic collections and suggest possible solutions.

Grand Central: A Guided Walking Tour
Website: http://anthonywrobins.com


On February 1st, 1913, the brand-new Grand Central Terminal opened its doors to an admiring public. On February 1st, 2013, the beautifully restored Terminal, rescued from destruction by a seminal 1978 Supreme Court decision, celebrated its Centennial, accompanied by exhibitions, events, and the new book: Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark (Abrams, 2013). The Terminal’s creation combined engineering bravado (sinking two train yards below ground), technological wizardry (electrifying the trains to eliminate steam and enable their underground functioning), and real-estate savvy (replacing the original street-level train yard with 16 blocks of newly prime Midtown Manhattan real-estate, whose development paid for it all) with innovative planning (interior ramps and looping tracks) and Paris-inspired Beaux-Arts design. This walking tour, led by the author of the new book, brings the Terminal to life – its remarkable history, stunning architecture, and central role in creating midtown Manhattan.


Anthony W. Robins has been guiding natives and visitors to the city’s wonders of steel and stone for more than twenty-five years. Trained as an architectural historian at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, Tony had a 20-year-long career at New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission, where he served as Deputy Director of Research and Director of Survey. He has published books on Grand Central Terminal, the New York subway system, Art Deco architecture in New York, and the original World Trade Center, as well as articles in The New York Times, New York Magazine, Preservation, Architectural Record, Progressive Architecture, Gourmet, and The Connoisseur. He teaches about New York City history and architecture at NYU and Columbia, and has lectured on the subject nationally and internationally. In 2017, the Guides Association of New York City honored him with the “Guiding Spirit” award.

Preservation Techniques for Paper-Based Art Library Collections - SOLD OUT
Drawing on the conference theme, "Out of Bounds," this workshop will expand beyond the typical boundaries of art librarianship to explore the important areas of preservation and conservation for paper-based collections. The purpose of this workshop will be to provide didactic and hands-on instruction in how to conduct basic, low-cost preservation techniques for non-rare paper-based collections. An emphasis will be placed on materials typically found in art library collections, such as large, visual monographs, smaller publications composed of a single folio, various ephemeral items in singular form or as accompanying material, and other fragile, paper-based collection items. Materials, tools, and methods will stress efficient and cost-effective strategies for librarians with limited budgets and time. Participants will receive material samples, some tools and completed work from the hands-on activities, as well as detailed handouts with techniques, materials, tools, and vendors, to serve as reference material for future work. Additionally, an extensive bibliography of sources to assist with further preservation techniques that can be implemented at their own institutions will be provided.
