Jane Darcovich is Art and Architecture Liaison Librarian at The University of Illinois Chicago (UIC). The university offers BFA and MFA programs in Studio Arts, Moving Image, New Media Arts, Photography, Graphic Design and Industrial Design. She collaborated with studio art faculty on two altered books exhibitions held in the university library, showcasing the work of undergraduate students.

She will discuss the impact of the exhibitions in building stronger relationships between the library and art department faculty, as well as outreach to the wider UIC community.
