Study Tours


ARLIS/NA International Relations Committee (IRC) study tours provide a global perspective on art information services and visual arts programming. Participants gain behind-the-scenes access to innovative art library facilities and historic collections worldwide. Deep engagement with international colleagues offers unparalleled opportunities for collaboration as well as inspiration for new approaches to the profession. The IRC actively encourages inclusiveness, diversity, and a multiplicity of viewpoints and perspectives for the society by implementing annual study tours that strengthen ARLIS/NA's partnerships with international organizations and institutions.
