Study Tours

Mission

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.

Upcoming Tours

To ensure the safety of ARLIS/NA members and our international colleagues, ARLIS/NA study tours will resume when the worldwide pandemic subsides, a viable vaccine is widely available, and travel bans are lifted. Planned destinations include Japan, Greece, and Chile.
