The Co-Moderators of the Materials SIG, Teri Dowling and Johanna Kasubowski, would like to organize a session for the ARLIS/NA 2018 Conference on the topic:
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 various materials used in the art and design curriculum – art objects, material product samples, color samples, design objects, fashion construction samples, natural history samples, games.
These collections pose unique challenges for libraries to organize and provide access for their patrons. We invite papers on people’s experiences in areas such as:
- Building, organizing, and providing access to these collections
- Partnering with faculty
- Funding, working with donors
- Uses in instruction and visual or other literacies
- Lessons learned
- Digital access and discovery
Proposals and Timeline:
If you’d like to present as part of this session, please submit an abstract by April 21st. We will compile a session proposal before the May 1st, 2017 deadline.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
