“Gone Digital: Collections and Collaborations”
A Call for Paper Presentations
At our upcoming meeting in New Orleans, librarians, archivists, and curators from the Amistad Research Center, Tulane University’s Louisiana Research Collection and Hogan Jazz Archive, the Old U.S. Mint, and the New Orleans Museum of Art will share with us their experiences and expertise in translating unique archival materials into online digital collections.
Expanding upon this digital resources theme, we invite ARLIS/SE members to submit proposals for presentations that address the challenges and opportunities of navigating the digital age as an art librarian.
We want to hear from you!
- What effect have new technologies, new channels of access, and the demands of digital humanities scholarship had on your library, your teaching, and your own professional practice?
- What visualization tools are you using to support instruction and scholarship?
- What unique collections are your libraries or institutions digitizing, and what are the goals for these collections?
- What apps or new technologies are you incorporating into library instruction or reference? How do you assess their effectiveness?
- How are new modes of publishing affecting access to resources in the arts?
We’re also interested in any burning issues or new projects you’d like to discuss or share.
Please submit a proposed title, along with a 200 word abstract, and your contact information, to Kasia Leousis, Architecture and Art Librarian, Auburn University, ksl0008 [at] auburn.edu.
Member presentations will take place on Friday, November 22nd, at the New Orleans Museum of Art. A digital projector, laptop computer, and internet connection will be provided. The deadline for proposal submissions is Friday, August 30th.
