We are pleased to officially announce ARTiFACTS, a new Library and Information Studies student group at UCLA.
ARTiFACTS shall promote the social and professional growth of its members and support the Department of Information Studies at UCLA. It will provide students at UCLA with the opportunity to explore information issues relating to collections of or about the visual and performing arts, and artifacts of material culture. It will encourage professional networking within the fields of museum informatics, visual resources, and arts librarianship, and will actively promote involvement in professional activities beyond the classroom through lectures, workshops, visits to local collections, special events, and liaison with regional and national associations such as the Art Libraries Society of North America, the Visual Resources Association, the American Association of Museums, the Museum Computer Network, and the College Art Association.
