ARLIS/NA New England’s “Virtual Snapshot: What’s up with Art librarianship?” webinar on 11/9/15

unnamed
The Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA), New England Chapter invites you to join us for a virtual tour of the art library/visual resources profession on Monday, November 9, 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm EST.
Whether you’re an art library veteran, art library-curious, or somewhere in between this will be an illuminating look at some of the exciting work happening in the field. ARLIS/NA or regional chapter membership is not required for attendance.
To register for this free event, please visit: http://bit.ly/1RFtEnH. Note that the webinar meeting space will open at 7 pm EST, and the official event start time is 7:30 pm EST.
Speakers and topics include:
Jesi Buell, Instructional Design and Web Librarian, Colgate University
Information and Visual Literacy Instruction Tools
Digital Learning Objects (DLOs) are examples of a successful Blended Learning tool at Colgate University. These interactive, digital tutorials allow for student learning outside the classroom which increases time in Library sessions, put lessons in context, and encourages autodidactism. This presentation will show examples, give advice on best practices, and explain how the Instructional Design Librarian plans on putting together a visual literacy DLO.
Jasmine Burns, Image Technologies and Visual Literacy Librarian, Indiana University Bloomington
Visual Resource Collection Management
During this presentation, I will discuss my plans for a large data migration from a homegrown institutional image repository (created by my predecessor in the mid-1990s) into ARTstor’s SharedShelf. I will give a background of the structure and uses of current system, map out my overall migration plan, and share my projected timeline for the process.
Sarah Carter, Director, Bridwell Art Library at the University of Louisville
Creative Outreach and Programming
The Bridwell Art Library connected the artistic practice of self portraits to a wider audience by designing and implementing a social media campaign highlighting “Shelfies in Art History.” This presentation will focus on the collaborative exhibit design and promotion that made the exhibit and social media campaign a success with not only our patrons, but within the wider community of Louisville.
Lareese Hall, Architecture + Art Librarian, Massachusetts Institute of Technology 
Artists’ Book Collections
If you had to use just six books in your artists’ book collection to explain your collection philosophy what would you choose? This is the premise for a video series that looks at artists’ books in academic environments and at what it means to “collect”.
The presentations will be followed by some Q&A time.
If you’re never attended a webinar before or would like assistance with the technical logistics, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Hope to see you on 11/9!
Sincerely,
Ashley Peterson (ARLIS/NA NE Chapter President)
Amber Welch (ARLIS/NA NE Chapter Secretary)
