Collaborative ART Archive (CARTA), a project managed by the Internet Archive and NYARC, with participation from dozens of art and museum libraries in the US and Canada, enables members to collectively capture, preserve, and provide access to at-risk web-based art materials. While the web has solidified as a medium for art materials over the last decade, the amount of content and its ephemerality has increased as many galleries, arts organizations, and artists have been impacted by the pandemic. This has highlighted the importance of a model that leverages shared infrastructure, expertise and collecting activities amongst art libraries to scale the extent of web-published, born-digital materials preserved and accessible for art scholarship and research. The panel will discuss the various goals of CARTA members and the impacts of this work on professional practice for the art and museum library field as well as end users, including art and digital humanities researchers.
