In April 2018, the Academic Division was charged by the ARLIS/NA board to work with the Public Policy Committee and Collection Development Special Interest Group on developing a report to investigate the state of art libraries and art librarianship across our academic libraries. This session, coordinated by the groups listed above, will be an opportunity to explore trends and issues discussed in the report. Project team members will share insights from the report, including survey data and case studies, while inviting session participants to reflect on and share their own experiences. We will discuss collection use and management, the tensions between space for collections versus space for students and study, librarians as subject specialists, and how all of this impacts teaching and learning, focusing on current trends and opportunities. Come prepared to learn, engage, and leave ready to put ideas into action.

Learning Objectives
Attendees will:
  • Use the findings of the report to identify possible areas of challenge in the home institutions
  • Articulate their own position among the significant trends highlighted within the report in order to assess their own needs for action steps
  • Engage with colleagues in order to find inspiration and build community
