On a Dime: Transitioning a Traditional Museum Exhibit into a Virtual Exhibit in Two Days
Shaina Harkness, The Dali Museum
"On a Dime" will demonstrate in 10 slides how The Dali Museum transitioned an entire ‘blockbuster’ show (Midnight in Paris) from a traditional on-site experience to a virtual one in a matter of two days. Every detail of the on site experience was able to be replicated in the online exhibit, and moving from a physical to virtual environment enabled us to make it more accessible to a wider audience – a worldwide, virtual audience.

Let’s Share the Wealth! : Stimulating and Empowering Local Art Communities
Fannie Ouyang - Colby College
Artists are often made to pay to table at art festivals. At Colby College, we exercised a different event model that compensated all participants for their anticipated work. The event focused on stimulating the local arts economy and encouraged conversations about creative labor and commerce as viable artistic practices.

Talking in Circle: Elders in the Library
Fong Ku, Alberta University of the Arts
The day after Canada’s historic National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, our library closed its doors midday for a Talking Circle with members of our university’s Indigenous Elder Council. The inaugural gathering leads efforts to reflect Indigenous Knowledges in our collection and services, as well as our ways of knowing and doing.

Opening Up Artists' Books at Cornell's Fine Arts Library
Marsha Taichman, Cornell University
In this brief talk, I will discuss how our collection was formed, as well as how it has grown in just a few years, how these special titles are cataloged and processed, our collection development and the focus on DEI, and a variety of different use cases that have activated our books, from use in studios to exhibitions to public talks. I will talk about problems that we have faced with funding, processing, promotion, and preservation, as well as some of the solutions that we’ve found. I also have some recommendations for libraries that are considering making their collections more open.

Creating Community via Indigenous and Mainstream Assessment Methods
Sara Quimby, Library Director, Institute of American Indian Arts
Shoshana Vegh-Gaynor, Instruction and Reference Librarian, Institute of American Indian Arts
Our library endeavored to create a more inclusive formula for assessment by combining mainstream and indigenous methodology. By employing a more culturally-responsive model, we were able to garner community-wide feedback, informing the direction of our information literacy program.
