Conference Program Highlights (Part I)

The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) 45th Annual Conference Arts du Monde will be held February 5-9, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Seattle’s post-conference survey results asked for programming centered on digital art history, collection development, user experience, instruction, and scholarly communications, and we are happy to report that this conference has innovative and inspiring sessions, individual papers, and workshops that cover these areas and more.

These highlighted sessions below will provide attendees with practical approaches for implementing new ideas and technologies.

Making Collections Accessible: Legal Tools for the 21st Century
Three leading IP lawyers will present tools and strategies for addressing the intellectual property, privacy and contract rights associated with works

Following this session, Dr. Elizabeth Townsend Gard of Tulane and several of her law students will be on hand to demo the Durationator. During this follow-up session, the Tulane team has offered to produce Durationator reports for those who want to bring records of books, art, photographs, periodicals, or archival materials in their collections (detailed instructions forthcoming)

How to Develop a Comic Book and Graphic Novel Collection
This panel will weave together four projects in graphic novel and comic book collection development that provide insight on issues of acquiring, processing, accessing, and archiving these collections.

Instruction in Sync: Faculty-Librarian Collaborations in the Classroom
This session explores three collaborative endeavors: introducing undergraduate students to digital humanities research methods; integrating art historical research and artistic practice for studio art students; and helping students navigate the conceptual spaces where art historical research converges—the museum, the library, and scholarly discourse
