New Media Challenges and Solutions for Art Information Professionals
New media art, objects, and scholarly projects in the digital realm are challenging our traditional definitions and methodologies for collection, preservation, and research as information professionals. As the scope for new media continues to expand, how are we defining, describing, and cataloging new media objects? How are we preparing for and anticipating storage and conservation needs? How do we respect artist intent and support scholarly research around these born-digital objects?
We invite proposals that share research and projects featuring new media in art librarianship and visual resources management for our annual virtual conference, an opportunity for emerging professionals to present in a supportive and engaging space while connecting with other students and early career librarians across North America.
The webinar will take place on Saturday, October 13th at 1PM CST. Proposals are due by Friday, September 14th. You must also be available to participate in a short practice session with the webinar software in the evening on Thursday, October 4.
