ACRL Arts and ARLIS/NA Joint Webinar: Perspectives on Art Publishing

Perspectives on Art Publishing: Past, Present, Future and Open
Join us for a Webinar on February 28
Space is limited.
Reserve your Webinar seat now at:

https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/361529769
ARLIS/NA and ACRL Arts members are invited to attend this special joint webinar that explores the past, present, and future of scholarly publishing in the arts. 

Alexander Watkins, Art & Architecture Librarian at the University of Colorado Boulder, will discuss the Open Access movement in relation to arts journals, the future of arts scholarship, and potential roles for libraries and librarians. Open Access is about removing the walls around research, making scholarship universally available for free. The presentation will arm arts librarians with arguments and rationale that will help them promote Open Access in their own communities. (This presentation is encored from the ACRL Arts Discussion Forum at the 2013 ALA annual conference.) 


Ian McDermott (Collection Development Manager at ARTStor) and Erin Dunigan (Retail Manager at Park Life and recently Sales Associate at ARTBOOK | DAP) will explore the changing landscape of art book publishing in the face of
Amazon.com, bookstore closures, self-publishing, and shrinking library budgets. Their presentation will share how diverse publishers are approaching their long-term viability in the commercial and academic marketplaces and will invite discussion from the ARLIS and ACRL Arts communities about what this means for art librarians. (This presentation follows an article published in the Fall 2013 issue of Art Documentation and a panel discussion held at the New York Public Library on Feb. 12, 2013.) 

Only current ARLIS/NA and ACRL Arts members may attend this event. Registration will close February 27, 2014, one day before the webinar. For assistance, please contact 
webinars@arlisna.org

This webinar will be recorded, and the video will be made available to current members of ARLIS/NA and ACRL Arts members within two weeks after the webinar.
