Public Policy Committee News Alerts support the committee's mission to monitor public policy issues and keep the ARLIS/NA membership informed. The monthly alerts are intended to be conversation starters, help members keep up on public policy issues, and alert members to new developments. The news for July 2015 follows:
The ARLIS/NA executive board endorsed the College Art Association’s (CAA) Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts after careful consideration of the Code during the June 18, 2015, board meeting.
The ARLIS/NA Executive Board invites applications for a Multimedia & Technology Reviews (MTR) co-editor. The co-editor is appointed/reappointed by the Vice President/President Elect in consultation with the Editorial Director, reports to the Editorial Director, and is a member of the ARLIS/NA Editorial Board.
Dear ARLIS/NA Community,
I trust you returned from the Fort Worth conference in March invigorated and inspired by the content, friendships—new and renewed—and conference as a whole. It is an exciting time for our society with the upcoming March 2016, Seattle joint VRA-ARLIS/NA conference planning well underway. New to this conference is a Digital Humanities THATCamp being organized as a preconference event and the previously announced Association of Architecture School Librarians (AASL) conference overlap with our meeting. Continued planning for another Leadership Institute is in the works as well. We are also gearing up for the 2017 conference in New Orleans.
