Subject Guides in the Digital Age: A Workshop on Curating the Most Relevant, Inclusive, and Current Resources
This workshop is dedicated to the curation, creation, and management of subject research guides. Workshop leaders will discuss and demonstrate a framework that systematically identifies core, unique, and unfamiliar research resources using arts administration and museum studies guides as examples. Participants will be invited to workshop their own guides on any topic of choice while guided through a step-by-step process. Questions about research guides will be addressed: What strategies can librarians use to efficiently collect data about digital resources included in subject guides across institutions? How do you evaluate resources that are commonly recommended and included in subject guides and what tools can be used to help visualize and assess this data? How does format dictate the quantity and organization of titles on subject guides? Participants will also be challenged to think about systemic bias in library collections when identifying core resources based on frequency. “Subject Guides in the Digital Age: A Workshop on Curating the Most Relevant, Inclusive, and Current Resources” will appeal to all teaching, reference, and subject liaison librarians. Personal lap-tops will be necessary.

Collaborative Letterpress Broadside
Join the teaching artists at Spudnik Press Cooperative to explore the art form of letterpress through printing experimental broadsides. While letterpress printing is no longer the main method of commercial printing, it has continued to evolve and thrive as an essential art form for writers, designers, and visual artists. Today, artists turn to letterpress printing because of its tactile quality, the control one has as their own printer, the love of the materials, the connection to the history of publishing, or the satisfaction of running the machine.

Attendees will be invited to view and handle prints, tools, and type in order to understand all the art form has to offer and then try their hand at setting metal type and operating a Vandercook printing press. Attendees will also work extemporaneously to create abstract type-based backgrounds using wood type. These two printing elements will be combined to produce the unofficial ARLIS/NA poster using wood and metal type. Each participant will be able to keep one or more prints from the session.

Creating Radical Hope: Artistic and Speculative Library Responses to Climate Change
Heat waves and wildfires, global pandemics, floods and droughts. We are already experiencing the damaging impact of climate change. Natural disasters put library facilities and collections at risk, while mass migration alters who uses libraries and why. Can we envision library futures that respond to the hopes, fears, and needs of our patrons?

This workshop offers the chance to imagine future libraries in response to the climate crisis. Using speculative design, presenters will provide an exploratory framework to engage in critical discussion that will lead to brainstorming activist and artistic responses library staff might take toward environmental issues.

While we can’t “solve climate change,” small actions taken together are powerful antidotes to the paralysis of fear and uncertainty. We will learn from one another and build alliances. Participants will gain an introduction to speculative design, seed ideas for micro-tasks, explore library futures, and can contribute to a zine.

Showing the world one drawing at a time: The Urban Sketching Project
Urban Sketching is a movement created in 2007 by Seattle journalist and illustrator, Gabrile Campanario. Although similar to plein air painting (to paint outdoors), a term which was made most well-known by the French Impressionists during the 19th century. Urban Sketching looks at the ideas of visual storytelling in a virtual environment, and the educational value of on-location drawing. This movement encourages drawing spaces and places on location, rather than drawing from photographs. Urban Sketching brings together an international group of people who “Show their world one drawing at a time”. The goal is simple-sketch what you see, in or outdoors, and share online. You don’t need to be an artist, expert or someone who draws all the time.

The Urban Sketching project encouraged our campuses to think about life in new ways during a stressful time. During the pandemic, people needed activities, like urban sketching, to help them connect, share, and escape their everyday lives. Sketching scenes from daily life elevated seemingly mundane moments, allowing us to see our own world from a different perspective. Urban sketching relieves stress, hones observational and analytical skills, and forces us to take a moment to stop and “draw the roses.” But also, urban sketching is similar to the scholarly research process. Both rely on observation, analysis, storytelling, and contributing to community knowledge and, both processes use a curated set of data and observations to tell a story that will likely turn into something more.

This workshop will last 90 minutes and start with a 15-minute presentation addressing the Rutgers Urban Sketching project including an assignment for student workers, a staff workshop, virtual drawing sessions, campus drawing sessions, highlighting collections, a research guide, an assessment plan, and more. Following the presentation participants will be led through a series of warm up drawing exercises, timed sketches, and weather permitting there will also be a short excursion outside the conference center to sketch the local landscape. No experience necessary and everyone is invited to participate, engage, and share their sketches if they choose. Individuals are invited to bring any medium they prefer to use when sketching, as well, a variety of paper, pens, pencils, and markers will be available for use at no cost.

Creative Collections: Artist Archives in Academic Libraries
Continuing to grow archival collections in sustainable ways that enhance learning missions is a key issue facing Special Collections and other archives situated in academic libraries. This panel presentation will address the life cycle of artists’ archives, from collection development to processing to teaching, as an illustration of possible workflows and collaborations. Archivists responsible for donor relations, acquisitions, processing, and outreach will discuss aspects of artists archives, along with working artists. Special Collections has increasingly drawn on artists collections and artists books in instruction and outreach. Existing artists’ archives and their ongoing use by students and creators reflects the intersection of activism, art, and community organizing. The panel will address how Special Collections has sustained and pursued new relationships with artist donors, emphasizing previously marginalized communities, navigated new housing and access challenges, and leveraged newly accessible materials to successfully pursue new learning opportunities through instruction sessions and outreach events.

Preserving Photographic Glass Plates: Conservation and Access in the Digital Age
Invented in 1851 and used until the 1940s, glass plates were a significant technological improvement that enabled the creation of sharp, detailed photographic prints. Cultural institutions frequently retain glass plates in their collections, however, the long-term preservation of these objects involves a significant commitment of resources and smaller institutions often lack dedicated guidance. This session brings together an interdisciplinary panel of conservators, historians, and archivists who will present their own preservation and public access strategies and discuss the relevance of these materials to their distinct fields of study. The moderated question and answer portion of the session will emphasize the need for collaboration between institutions in order to undertake ambitious conservation-related projects and improve access to these significant historical materials.

Diversity Forum: Black Lunch Table
Black Lunch Table (BLT) is a vernacular history archiving project. Our mission is to build a more comprehensive understanding of cultural history by illuminating the stories of Black people and our shared stake in the world. We envision a future in which all of our histories are recorded and valued. 

We will discuss how BLT’s archival team combines cataloguing and archival standards with radical oral history methodologies to create a publicly accessible database that privileges the voices and experiences of Afro-diasporic artists and creative professionals. This presentation will discuss how BLT strives to close gaps in the historical record that have foreclosed participation and visibility of people of the African diaspora. Additionally, we will discuss the role we play in changing the landscape of Wikimedia by engaging new and diverse editors who work to improve the documentation of Black artists across all Wikimedia platforms. We’ll finish with a lightning round of Wikipedia editing, so we encourage folks to bring their laptops and sign up in advance for a Wikipedia user name here! An alternate analog activity will also be available.

“Who Were We? Where Did We Go? Voices from the Early Years of the Society”
The first ARLIS/NA conference held in New York City in 1973 ended with a rap session addressing the questions: Who Are We? Where Are We Going? Now fifty years later, four long-time members of the Society reflect on those questions, providing some perspective on the origins, early years and accomplishments of ARLIS/NA. What was the impetus for a stand-alone organization, given the many other library associations with art librarian members? Who were the leaders who made it happen? How did the chapters develop? Who were the exhibitors and sponsors? How did the publications advance the profession? What were some of the highlights along the way? This session is a key event in the celebration of the 50th Anniversary conference.

Lightning Talk Session 1
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.

Digital Humanities & Open Educational Resources in the Arts Roundtable
The Digital Humanities (DH) & Open Educational Resources (OER) in the Arts Roundtable is an opportunity to discuss intersections between open resources of all kinds. These may be produced in museums, libraries, archives, by librarians and archivists, students, and scholars. What are ways that these resources can be shared and interconnected to enhance one another? What principles of OER would benefit DH and vice versa? How do DH and OER overlap at your institutions, either in personnel, resources, or patrons, or where could they? How can we further these connections?

Breaking the Norm: New Initiatives and New Expectations for Asynchronous Fine Arts Library Instruction
Settled into the new reality of asynchronous teaching during a pandemic, two arts librarians have embraced new initiatives and created new expectations at their home institutions while also looking forward. Leah Sherman’s paper will discuss the evolution of an asynchronous library instruction program for the Fine Arts from a series of PDF handouts to a robust Canvas module at Florida State University. Adele Flannery’s paper will contrast established pedagogical formulas with contemporary video narratives and propose new ways of conceptualizing video tutorials inspired by Youtube when resources are limited. Attendees will see how various technologies can be used for asynchronous instruction and hear how these librarians have marketed and advocated for their initiatives today and in the post-pandemic future.

Know Their Names: Case Studies in DEIA Collection Assessment, Expansion, and Access
The Thomas J. Watson Library, Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Gallery of Australia Research Library & Archives have each embarked on DEIA-centered collection assessment and expansion projects.

Watson assessed and expanded African American artist representation and visibility in the collections through bibliographic reviews for 700+ artists, identifying works for acquisition and enhancing catalog records with expanded content notes. Additionally, Watson launched an online index connecting researchers with records for those artists in Watson’s online catalog.

The NGA Research Library & Archives sampled and analyzed large collections of artist monographs to identify the gender ratio of artists therein. The data is measured against national and institutional surveys of exhibition and acquisition in galleries and museums. The results provide a valuable lens to critically view library collections past and present and inform future collection development policies and practice.

The two papers in this session examine rationales, methodologies, and outcomes of each project, and offer inspiration and tools to assist institutions with similar initiatives.

No budget? No Staff? No Problem! Developing Special Collections on a Shoe-String Budget
With increasing staff shortages and budgetary restraints the unique value of art library special collections can seem a luxury or even an unnecessary expense. This session presents two different, but complimentary, case studies, each leveraging both institutional mission and faculty / student collaboration to develop special collections with no additional funds or staff. In doing so it aims to provide adaptable models that may fit a variety of institutional settings regardless of size or budgets.

President's Choice
Modern in the Middle co-authors Susan Benjamin and Michelangelo Sabatino will present their research and talk about the discoveries surrounding their award-winning 2020 publication, now in its second printing from Monacelli Press. Susan draws on a decades-long career in historic preservation, having written dozens of landmark nominations for Chicago-area buildings. Michelangelo frames his discussion from numerous international research projects, his position at IIT's school of architecture and the restoration of his modernist home in the Chicago suburb of Riverside.

Modern in the Middle uncovers the special and unique role Chicago (in the "middle" of America) played in the development of the Modern House. Although locals Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe were the giants in the room, there were relatively-unknown talents whose stunning work is revealed through gorgeous Hedrich Blessing photos throughout the book. Stories about their clients (who were largely "middle" class) and the architect-client relationships are equally compelling. The authors' passion for their subject is clearly felt from beginning to end of this fascinating read.

The organizers of this event are working with a local bookseller to sign and sell copies on site.

The Impact of COVID-19 on Professional Development: A Conversation on the Past, Present, and Future for Academic Arts Librarians
Since March 2020, librarians have pivoted their work multiple times to accommodate the move to remote instruction and back again. This applies not only to efforts in teaching or reference, but also to research, publications, and presentations. This joint round table hosted by the ARLIS/NA Academic Library Division and the ACRL/Arts Section provides a space for academic arts librarians to discuss and share their experiences with the impact of COVID-19 on their professional development and scholarship over the past year and a half, and to plan together for future scholarly endeavors in a post-pandemic world.

Letting users guide the way: a framework for user-centered design
Efforts are underway to integrate the more than 3 million Artstor images with JSTOR’s journals, ebooks, and primary source content. Integrating image resources alongside textual content fosters interdisciplinary opportunities and opens up access to new users. It also requires dedication to preserve existing workflows for image-centric research and teaching.

In 2021, the JSTOR user research team conducted qualitative research with hundreds of faculty and librarians about their image teaching and learning needs. This session shares tactics, methods, and insights guiding the product development of Artstor/JSTOR. The user experience framework in this presentation may be used to ensure user-centric design for a variety of projects.

As part of this session we will explore a framework centered around the following user needs:
-Explore/Discover
-Evaluate and Analyze
-Scholarship
-Teaching
-Access and Impact

Confronting Racist or Derogatory Titles in Digitized Photographs
The New York Public Library has digitized close to 600,000 photographs on their Digital Collections website to-date, some of which include racist and/or derogatory content. When institutions digitize visual materials en-masse, it is meant to provide greater access to materials and to further one’s knowledge and in hopes of providing a valuable resource. However, what impact does this have on users, and society at large when institutions themselves are perpetuating problematic images and racist narratives without any explanations, interpretations or ‘trigger’ warnings? This roundtable discussion invites those who may also have similar issues in their institutions and would like to brainstorm possible solutions.

Art-chiving the Web: Collaborative Collection Development and Preservation for Art History Web Resources
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.

Beyond the Classroom: Developing Image Databases for Research
Image databases can be powerful research tools, especially as digital methodologies unique to the growing field of digital humanities are incorporated into arts and humanities disciplines. This session looks to highlight the evolving field of visual resources in the 21st century with an emphasis on how image collections can be developed for research in art and architectural history, museum and library collections, and the digital humanities.

The speakers will emphasize how these database projects make available important collections for cross-institutional research or public access, or aggregate disparate collections from within one institution or from different institutions and repositories, often international.

These presentations will look to best practices of database development across the projects; to consider how these databases relate to promoting art historical research more broadly, across geographies, chronologies, and cultures; and to recognize points of divergence among project strategies appropriate to their differing content and audiences.

Creative Practice as Scholarly Practice: Artistic Alternatives to “Publish or Perish” Models in LIS
This panel will bring together information professionals to explore the topic of creative practice and research as scholarly communication. Joan Jocson-Singh and Junior Tidal will discuss their connections with extreme music (EM) and their grant-supported work on a multimedia bibliography meant to build visibility for traditionally marginalized groups and researchers within EM. Kate Joranson will explore the interconnectivity of her roles as artist, librarian, and caregiver, sharing her projects I’m Wondering and Curiosity Archive. Sara Smith’s presentation will introduce attendees to their practice of speculative creation from archival research and related projects such as a library fellowship program for student artists. Panelists will then devote time to discussion with each other and the audience.

Poetry Foundation Library
**This tour is SOLD OUT**

Since its opening in June 2011, the Poetry Foundation building designed by Chicago’s John Ronan Architects has been praised widely. The November 2011 issue of Architectural Record notes, “In keeping with the art form it serves, the new Poetry Foundation is a respectful, restrained building that employs an economy of means and methods, just as a good poem employs an economy of language.” The concrete, glass, steel, and wood building complies with the Silver Level of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System. The Poetry Foundation also houses the Midwest’s only library dedicated to poetry. Attendees will have a tour of the library and exhibition space, as well as a close-up look at the building.

Challenges in Caring for Art and Art Libraries: Preservation, Management and Access
There are considerable challenges in caring for art and/or art libraries, particularly in the key areas of preservation, access, and collection management. In this session, three institutions present case studies overviewing how they successfully managed these universal issues. “Wolf Vostell’s Betonbuch” looks at how material science information informs a library’s understanding and preservation needs of a concrete artist book. “What Do I Do with That” is a look at how an academic archive identifies preservation needs and provides access to its art collections. And “On the Move” shares tips and insight on the challenges of a large-scale collection move at an art library and archives.

Programmatic Information Literacy Instruction in Art and Design Libraries
Librarians in academic libraries are often experienced in presenting library instruction to students in art history classes, but may be less familiar with incorporating information literacy instruction into studio art courses. Transitioning from single sessions to a multi-session programmatic approach can present an additional level of difficulty for librarians working with faculty colleagues. However, there are a multitude of ways for librarians to partner with faculty to reach students in all creative disciplines in a more sustained and effective way. In this panel, co-sponsored by the Teaching SIG and Art & Design School Library Division, the presenters will discuss how curriculum mapping helped to bridge the gap between faculty and librarians to introduce information literacy into the existing course scaffold in two different settings, one an art and design school library and the other the library of a small liberal arts college.

Visioning the (im)possible: experiences of librarian-caregivers during the pandemic and strategies for the future of library work
What has the pandemic work-life experience been for library workers who have caregiving responsibilities? As reports trickle into popular media about the perilously strained state of working parents, we look to our membership to ask: how are librarian caregivers holding up, moving forward, and making change in the workplace? This panel conversation addresses the current state and future possibilities of remote, hybrid, and flexible work arrangements in art libraries, specifically examining how these arrangements impact art librarians and library workers who are also caregivers. We ask: how has the “how” of our work changed? How can we co-create library workplaces that allow all workers to contribute and thrive? Panelists will share aggregate information gathered from the media, ARLIS/NA members, vignettes of life during the pandemic that illustrate shared but often unspoken experiences, and examples of advocacy and success in grappling with and implementing change toward a more equitable workplace.

Centering Digital Accessibility: Projects at Academic and Art & Design School Libraries
This panel will examine different ways that digital access and accessibility are currently being approached in art information work. In individual presentations as well as in conversation together with the moderator, the panelists will address topics such as image description, audio transcription, language translation, and virtual wayfinding. This conversation will also delve into issues such as navigating web accessibility standards and guidelines, adapting existing platforms and frameworks with a focus on accessibility, negotiating with vendors about accessibility requirements and features, and forming informed cohorts or communities of practice around disability studies and accessibility praxis. Finally, we will reflect on where our accessibility work still falls short, and how we can continue to improve access for art library patrons and staff.

New Voices in the Profession
Sensorial Inclusion: Multi-sensory exhibition strategies at institutions of contemporary art in Canada
Ellen Belshaw, McGill University
While the prevalence of ocularcentrism – the prioritization of sight above the other senses – has been addressed by scholars and practitioners regarding anthropology and history museums, it remains a central issue in many museums of art and similar cultural heritage institutions. Experiencing art with senses other than sight are often discouraged in contemporary exhibition spaces, excluding many different modes of creation and participation for both artists and visitors; often this means excluding artists working in multimedia or non-ocular media, as well as Disabled people and people of less ocularcentric cultures (i.e., communities who prioritize oral traditions). Concurrently, many institutions are trying to improve the range of artists they exhibit and the demographics of visitors who attend their spaces but are facing many barriers.
This exploratory research is guided by the hypothesis that there is a correlation between the inclusion of non-normative perspectives in institutions of cultural heritage and the ocularcentric tendencies of those institutions. By surveying and interviewing professionals working in contemporary art institutions in Canada and using grounded theory methods, this research aims to parse out the factors that have led to the positive inclusion of multi-sensory works of art and/or multi-sensory ways of experiencing art, and what barriers there are for inclusion where this is not standard. By analyzing the levels of ocularcentrism of contemporary art institutions, this research can be used to the benefit of cultural heritage professionals to better understand and represent a wider range of demographics in the artists they exhibit and the visitors they attract.

Beyond the Fountain: Mapping a New Entrypoint to the Society of Independent Artists
Miranda Siler, Pratt Institute
"Beyond the Fountain” is a digital humanities project being created by the author in order to fulfill the requirements of a Master’s-level art history thesis. It will create a new entrypoint into the history of the Society of Independent Artists by utilizing data from the first exhibition catalogue. The project seeks to align with the original democratic spirit of the show, giving each artist an equal opportunity to be discovered through an interactive map. At the back of the 1917 catalogue is a list of names and addresses belonging to society members. A map created from this data will function as an entrypoint for further research. Possible lines of inquiry include finding clusters, thereby exposing hyper-local artist communities; searching for artists from a particular location; or looking for outliers and researching how they learned of the Society of Independent Artists. Overall, the goal of “Beyond the Fountain” is to explore the Society of Independent Artists in a new way, with an emphasis on bringing lesser-known artists to light. As the exhibition displayed the artists’ work in a non-hierarchical order, so will the map, using coordinates instead of the alphabet. Keeping with the spirit of “no jury, no prizes,” this map can help to disrupt the narrative that a “homogenous group of men” was responsible for the modern art movement in America. The hope is that “Beyond the Fountain” will spark new discussions, research, and points of view relating not only to the exhibition itself, but twentieth century American art more broadly.

This presentation will talk about the various steps used to transform a list of names and addresses into an interactive map. It will cover how the project used Pomodoro for OCR, OpenRefine for data clean-up and reconciliation, and ArcGIS for geocoding and visualization. The need for curation, addressing that a dataset is not objective or static but instead subject to a series of decisions made by the art historian, will be emphasized as a key part of working with data. The presentation will also touch on the lifecycle of digital humanities projects and how they are often generative in nature.

Preserving [Spectral] Knowledge: Indigeneity, Haunting, and Performing the Embodied Archive 
Sam Regal, University of California Los Angeles
Conservation and archives practitioners face practical and ethical challenges when tasked with the preservation of intangible indigenous artworks. Indigenous knowledge is often communicated in the form of embodied performance: it is transmitted through ceremonies, rituals, oral tradition, and lived experience. Indigenous knowledge is also relational, predicated on the belief that “[k]nowledge is shared with all of Creation […] It is with the cosmos, it is with the animals, with the plants, with the earth that we share this knowledge.” In approaching such material through a postcustodial lens, and invoking the Records Continuum Model (RCM), practitioners must appreciate the human body as a form of archive. As a body/archive, it is densely relational, inter- and multidimensional, affectively activated, and imprecisely duplicatable. Complications concomitantly abound. What happens when Indigenous people self-consciously confront and employ tropic mechanisms? This, as I see it, is a charged nexus through which we might better understand the embodied archive, spectral indigeneity, and the challenges of preserving these conceptual materials. My research examines the work of Jordan Abel and Rebecca Belmore, two contemporary Indigenous artists, and considers how their performance practices serve as forms of archival bodies. I also interrogate preservation practices surrounding these materials through a postcustodial lens.

Envisioning Libraries Through Feminist and Creative Practices
These papers share a common thread of improving workplace environments by using queer, feminist, and creative practices. Library Work as Vocation: The Hidden Cost of Work as a Calling examines the relationship between library work as a vocation and resilience narratives as situated in white Protestantism and positive thought traditions, and how positive thinking as a management strategy is used to isolate individuals and reduce worker solidarity. Moran explores how library workers can advocate for use of consensus decision making as an alternative decision-making framework and use artistic critique methods to provide framing language. Useful + Beautiful: Queering Information Worlds investigates how poetry, art, craft, and story-telling expand the possibilities for seeking, expressing, organizing, and sharing knowledge. Arts-based methods can inform the practical development of techniques that allow personal and local knowledge organization techniques to function alongside, with, or in resistance to global standards.

The Evolving Case : Artists’ Books Now and the British Library
The Evolving Case : Artists’ Books Now and the British Library
Jeremy Jenkins, Curator, Contemporary British Published Collections Emerging Formats, British Library

The talk The Evolving Case : Artists’ Books Now and the British Library explores the impact that a series of evenings, Artists’ Books Now had on the British Library. It tracks the collaborative process of bring together artists, their books with researchers, librarians, curators and an audience to ‘think aloud’ about the form. These events we examine how Artist’s Books Now supported and inspired a range of additional events and activities in the wider library developing the subject and leading to exhibits and a greater visibility of the artists’ books within the Collections . Following lockdown the talk will explore how continued collaborations with artists to find a fresh approaches to ensure artists books remain visible at the British Library.

Visual Literacy In and Beyond the Classroom
This session examines interdisciplinary, multimodal approaches to teaching visual literacy to college students and early career professionals. Visual literacy skills such as effectively navigating visual media resources, critically evaluating visual media, and ethically reusing visual content empower learners in both academic research and in understanding a networked and visually dense information landscape. The presentations in this session demonstrate that teaching visual literacy can start simply, with tools readily available to educators and competencies learners already possess. Attendees will learn how to teach visual literacy skills by creatively reframing existing resources and will explore interdisciplinary, lifelong learning-based approaches to understanding visual literacy.

Cyanotype Workshop with Jessica Labatte
Cyanotypes are one of the oldest photographic processes. Invented by Sir John Herschel in 1842 the cyanotype process uses a mixture of iron salts, ultraviolet light, and water to create dramatic blue and white images. The first photobook, Anna Atkins’s “Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions”, was illustrated entirely with cyanotypes. Many contemporary artists have revived the process to create innovative works of art that explore the intersection of science and art while expanding historical discourses surrounding the photographic medium. Join Jessica Labatte for a two-hour workshop to see student examples and learn this easy and immensely fun process. Each participant will have the opportunity to create four unique cyanotype prints. All the necessary supplies will be provided. Participants are invited to bring objects of varying opacities. Botanical elements make particularly interesting impressions.

Beyond the Textual: Visual Information Systems that Help and Hinder
Information systems with a visual focus in the arts describe museum and library catalogues, digital libraries, image databases and search engines, all of which have unique requirements that set the visually focused systems apart from their more textually focused counterparts. For users who seek out and examine visual information in the arts as primary sources, the performance of these systems can mean the difference between the success and failure of searching for, assessing, and analyzing visual content. This roundtable seeks to explore visual information systems’ user experiences through the thoughts of visual-information seekers and the information professionals who support them.

Awakening Arts Library Collections to DEIA: Responsive Acquisition Strategies for Addressing Bias
Given major cultural shifts around the world, libraries are pressed to address equitable and inclusive representation in collections, making how and where librarians find and purchase research materials vital. The session brings together the experiences of early, mid, and late career librarians from museum settings, academic libraries, and public libraries to join past and present perspectives in the field of art librarianship, specifically concerning acquisitions and DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility). The results of a recent survey focused on current acquisition practices that address issues of bias will be shared, along with subsequent recommendations that promote ethical, creative, and clear praxis for building exemplary collections among art libraries nationally. Future acquisition practices that are responsive to cultural shifts, trends, and needs will be discussed.

Confronting the Myth of Neutrality: Addressing Bias and Inclusion in Cataloging and Classification in Art Libraries
While they once claimed neutrality, library cataloguing and classification systems are, in fact, inherently biased and reflect the power structures in which they were created. This panel investigates ways in which librarians at three different GLAM institutions are working to understand and confront these biases in their work and professional practice.

Stefanie Hilles will discuss how she teaches university students about bias in the Fine Arts (N) range, which privileges white, male, European art over art made by women and Black, Indigenous, and other people of color.

Kim Ross will discuss her work on the Indigenous Peoples Subject Headings (IPSH) Project as well as tools and strategies for centering historically marginalized voices within library collections.

Treshani Perera will present initial findings from original research investigating the education, work experiences, and demographics of description specialists involved in inclusive description work and/or initiatives in libraries, archives, and museums.

The Power of Consortia
The panel will discuss two consortia in action from digital archives used for education and engagement from leading academic institutions and nonprofit organizations that are reshaping the way they approach pedagogical resources in the arts, library and archival communities.  In both consortia, members contribute data to shared resources which have shared cataloguing standards, a shared data model, and shared data published through on-line public access portals. One consortium is a group of design school libraries whose goal is to provide a community and standards-based approach to describing and managing design materials collections. The other consortium is a shared repository - publicly accessible / free to access and no cost to contribute; one of largest active databases of public art whose goal is to continue documenting public art in all communities. Both projects are looking for additional partners from the ARLIS community to participate in adding their institutional collections so that we can expand these resources for all.

 In the virtual age, it is critical to find new ways to engage our patrons online with our collections. This requires new ways of collaboration and a focus on flexibility, and accessibility in how we present our materials as a resource. The panel will share stories of how people are accessing collections online, and how the consortium model amplifies the power of scale to increase accessibility across these fields of study that can both pinpoint and expand networks of data.  Panel discussions will include: 
• How people are broadly using the collections in our consortium projects, and why that matters to their pedagogy, school experience and research.
• How consortia relationships create more equitable relationships between diverse types and sizes of institutions sharing collections together.
• How the consortium model helps us all do more with less by sharing online costs, people resources and expanding the range of research materials our public can have access to.
• How these shared online databases serve as teaching tools, providing the ability to expand our students, faculty, and patrons’ understanding of these collections, and be inspired by what they explore.
• How these consortium models help us balance the authoritative data structures with user-supplied content.

The Power of Consortia panel focuses on the use of new technologies and modes of interaction as a springboard for building greater accessibility to online repositories; and empowering institutions that participate in these consortia to serve their GLAM community with extensive resources.

Digital Tools and New Trends: Using Technology and Innovative Solutions to (Re)Establish Value in Images and Image Collections
What do art information professionals need to know about digital images and tools for making sense of digital image collections in an era of NFTs and images as data? How do we increase the value of these collections through innovation? This session brings together three presentations on current opportunities and challenges related to digital image collections. Lindsay King and Tess Colwell will demonstrate a new tool that algorithmically groups digital images into clusters based solely on visually similar characteristics. Sonja Sekely-Rowland and Jackie Spafford will discuss their NEH-funded project work developing a consortium of processing partners to address the needs of at-risk 35mm slide collections of the built environment. David Greene will demystify the concept of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) as they pertain to the art information professions, discussing their broad implications for the field while identifying some of the specific challenges and opportunities which they present in their nascent state.

Labors of Love: Underfunded, under-resourced, but not to be underestimated
Metropolitan museums and top tier research institutions are often the focus when discussing art librarianship. This leaves information professionals of smaller, non-traditional institutions, such as community colleges, out of the conversation when discussing issues of equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility to art and special collections. Two librarians from Houston Community College, who have found themselves dealing with rare, special collections without the title of “Art Librarian”, will speak to the challenges and opportunities these institutions present to the larger art and museum community. This panel will examine the underlying issues when it comes to serving underfunded and under-resourced institutions beyond traditional research institutions, and discuss proactive ways in which the profession can better support these institutions to preserve their collections, legacy, and support issues of equity through universal access.

Points of Connection: Using Wikidata for Art Information
Wikidata is a free, open, and multilingual knowledge base that serves as the structured data for Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects. Staff at many libraries, archives, and museums have found that Wikidata provides an accessible method of making information about collections and resources available as linked open data, which in turn enables greater discoverability, new audiences, and innovative forms of research.

This panel will feature case studies from art institutions where Wikidata projects are underway. Many of the featured projects will highlight the use of Wikidata for identity management, such for artist names, both as an alternative to and alongside vocabularies traditionally used in art information. Panelists will speak to how their respective Wikidata projects support the interests of researchers and broader institutional efforts. Together, the presented projects will demonstrate how Wikidata’s relatively low barrier to entry allow institutions to connect data that might otherwise be siloed in local repositories.

Edith Farnsworth House
The Edith Farnsworth House is located in Plano, Illinois 56 miles southeast of Chicago. This Mies van der Rohe designed masterpiece is a pilgrimage site for architects and designers worldwide and is considered one of the most important Modern assets in the United States. While visually minimal, the house‘s structure is extremely complex and interrelated. First conceived in 1945 as a country retreat for the client, Dr. Edith Farnsworth, the house as finally built appears as a structure of Platonic perfection against a complementary ground of informal landscape. This landscape is an integral aspect of Mies van der Rohe’s aesthetic conception. 5 hours (1-hour tour/plus travel time).

Frederick C. Robie House
The Frederick C. Robie House in the Hyde Park Neighborhood of Chicago is considered to be a masterpiece of the Prairie Style, the first architectural style unique to the United States. The building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is designated a National Landmark and an UNESCO World Heritage Site and is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Completed in 1910, Wright conceived of the house as an integral whole considering the connected elements of site and structure, interior and exterior, furniture, ornament, and architecture. Unrelentingly horizontal in its elevation and a dynamic configuration of sliding planes in its plan, the Robie House is the most innovative and forward-thinking of all Wright’s Prairie houses.
