Art Documentation Call for Papers

Art Documentation editors are seeking articles both for the Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 issues.  We would like to hear from authors who have written, or plan to write, articles on topics of broad relevance to our profession.

For the Fall 2008 issue, we are particularly interested in papers that only need fine tuning or editing for publication; the preliminary deadline is May 15, 2008.  We are also seeking proposals for the new “Between the Lines” feature that appears in each issue of Art Documentation.  These articles should be 1,500-2,500 words in length and take the form of an in-depth review of a significant publication, a comparative review featuring related publications, or a bibliographic essay.

For the Spring 2009 issue, please send us your ideas and abstracts for articles concerning research or projects on which you are working, professional issues about which you are passionate, or other subjects related to art librarianship and visual resources curatorship.  The preliminary deadline for this issue is October 15, 2008.

Are you presenting a paper at the Denver conference that could be expanded as an article in Art Documentation?  Please give it some thought and let us know.

We look forward to hearing from you!
