THATCamp ARLIS/NA + VRA

This pre-conference event to the third annual joint conference of ARLIS/NA (Art Libraries Society of North America) and VRA (Visual Resources Association) will bring together members of the professional and public communities to learn about digital humanities (DH) and share knowledge of tools, applications, and other DH projects.

What is THATCamp?

THATCamp stands for “The Humanities and Technology Camp.” It is an unconference: an open, inexpensive meeting where humanists and technologists of all skill levels learn and build together in sessions proposed on the spot. This allows for a more informal, collaborative atmosphere compared to a typical conference setting.

Who should come?

All are welcome! The organizers of the THATCamp are an enthusiastic working group of both ARLIS/NA and VRA members, but this event is open to the public. Non-ARLIS/NA and VRA members are encouraged to attend!

How to register?:

Attendance is limited to 75 participants to ensure a lively and engaged atmosphere. Apply now to let us know why you want to attend and what ideas you want to share. Registration is free and open from October 12th – November 13th. Register here.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent out early in 2016 with plenty of time for attendees to make plans to attend, propose sessions, and discuss interests prior to March 8th.

What to expect and other information:

The unconference format allows for a variety of crowdsourced sessions and topics, and the schedule of the event is not decided until after the accepted attendees propose sessions (here) leading up to the event.  As a group, we will vote on the content the morning of March 8th. Those who propose events are expected to lead and moderate the self-proposed sessions if they are voted into the schedule.

With a maximum of 75 participants, the THATCamp will be intimate, informal, and executed by the attendees themselves. We hope that sessions will create dialog about DH and cultural heritage, as well as demonstrations and showcases of current DH tools and projects from the attendees.

This is a great opportunity to practice presentation skills in an informal environment and talk about topics that didn’t make it into the conference program. Register today!

 

We hope to have some other fun things planned that day so stay tuned by checking the blog and following #arlisnavra2016 and #thatcamp.

For more information about THATCamps, visit the About page and the THATCamp 101 page.

If you have any questions, please email Sarah Seymore, ude.nogerou@eromyess.

We hope to see you in Seattle!

Pioneer Square Walking Tour: "The Rise and Fall and Rise and Fall of Pioneer Square"

This tour will spend two hours exploring the streets in and around Pioneer Square, Seattle's oldest central business district. It will explore the physical reshaping of the area, its economic history, and its venerable architectural monuments. Construction in the Pioneer Square area began in the 1850s, but its character as an isolated lumber/fishing hamlet did not really change until the 1880s. A serious fire in 1889, created a drastic shift in building characteristics; much of the current building stock dates from this post-fire period from 1889-1895. As the main shopping and financial centers of the city moved north during the 1910s and 1920s, Pioneer Square continued functioning as a rough-around-the-edges industrial/entertainment focus for Seattle. The area began to struggle before World War II, and its decline continued into the 1960s, when urban renewal proposals threatened its survival. The historic preservation movement was spearheaded by architects, gallery owners and other creative types in the 1960s and 1970s, with the result that the neighborhood boomed again by the 1980s and 1990s. Lately, a cyclic economic lull has again set in, as residents and businesses struggle with the high costs of doing business and living in a very popular city.

Maximum Participants: 15

Fee: $10

Accessibility: Walking, standing, navigating city streets.

Transportation: Meet your tour wrangler around the North Tower escalators on the Westin's Lobby Level before the 2:30 PM departure.

The Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park

Join Carrie Dedon, from SAM's Modern & Contemporary Art Department, on this thought-provoking exploration of the Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park.

The award-winning Olympic Sculpture Park is downtown Seattle's largest green space. As a former industrial site, the sculpture park's nine acres have undergone extensive restoration, achieving a range of environmental goals, including: brownfield redevelopment, creation of a Chinook salmon habitat and a pocket beach, extensive use of native plantings, and the capture and use of on-site rainwater.

 The lead designers on the project, Weiss/Manfredi Architects, created a distinct 2,200-foot Z-shaped path that zigzags from the park's pavilion to the water's edge, providing stunning views of the Olympic Mountain Range. The park includes a sculpture collection that features major works by influential artists from the past half-century up to the present day, including: Alexander Calder, Louise Bourgeois, Richard Serra, David Smith, Louise Nevelson, and, the newest monumental work, Echo, by Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa.

Maximum Participants: 20

Fee: $10

Accessibility: Walking (slight incline), standing, maneuvering city streets, getting on and off monorail.

Transportation:  Public bus and walking. Meet your tour wrangler around the North Tower escalators on the Westin's Lobby Level before the 2:30 PM departure.

Digital Cicognara Library Project

Working meeting of the Digital Cicognara Library charter partners. Observers are welcome. The DCL is an international initiative to recreate in digital form the remarkable private book collection of Count Leopoldo Cicognara (1767-1834). Held by the Vatican since 1824 and enumerated in a famous 1821 Catalogo ragionato, the Fondo Cicognara contains some five thousand early imprints that comprise the foundational literature of art and archaeology. When complete, the DCL will consist of the text of the Catalogo  integrated with sophisticated digital editions of every title in the corpus, including black-and-white facsimiles of the original volumes in the Vatican; one or more high-resolution, color facsimiles of unique copies from partner libraries; thorough bibliographic information; and searchable, full-text transcriptions of the books. For more information see the project website http://www.cicognara.org/

Art and Land Reclamation: Kent Earthworks and Gas Works Park

NEW START TIME: 8:00am

In Kent, just south of Seattle, experience two iconic examples of earth art. The Herbert Bayer Earthwork and the Robert Morris Earthwork are more than just visually interesting: these places demonstrate important, artistic solutions to complicated land-use issues such as flood control and reclamation. Ronda Billerbeck, Cultural Programs Manager, City of Kent, will introduce us to Bayer's work, which, in 2008, became the City's first landmark. Cath Brunner, Director of Public Art, 4Culture, will introduce us to the Morris work, part of 4Culture's public art collection and a site that attracts international visitors.

Following this, we'll head back up north to Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood and meet Richard Haag, internationally recognized and honored landscape architect, who will give us a tour of his award-winning creation: Gas Works Parks. Gas Works Park is one of the first post-industrial landscapes to be transformed into a public space. Designed by Haag in the 1970s, it is the site of a former coal gasification plant. Today, the site of approximately 20 acres offers shoreline access to Lake Union and a kite hill alongside preserved industrial towers and buildings which have been converted to picnic shelters and play spaces for children. Haag won the American Society of Landscape Architects “President's Award of Design Excellence” for this project. We are thrilled that Mr. Haag is graciously giving us this tour. It is an opportunity not to be missed!

Maximum Participants: 26
Fee: $30
Accessibility: Walking, standing.
Transportation: Coach. Meet your tour wrangler around the North Tower escalators on the Westin's Lobby Level before the 8:00 AM departure.

Retreating Glaciers and The Olmsteds: A Topographical Tour of Seattle's Parks and Boulevards

Seattle is shaped like an hourglass, with its business district at the narrowest, central part. Visitors notice two things immediately about the city: it is flanked on both sides by water (salty Puget Sound on the west; fresh Lake Washington on the east) and studded with hills yielding a variety of views. A glacial retreat 10-15,000 years ago blessed the region with numerous mountains, lakes, estuaries and basins. Moistened by ample rain, this landscape grew lush and sprouted the forests that attracted 19th-century settlers seeking to capitalize on nature's bounty. This tour will explore the hills, valleys, and shorelines of the city that sprang up around Henry Yesler's modest lumber export mill, and has experienced economic peaks and valleys since 1851.

By 1900, Seattle had big-city aspirations and, with an eye to Boston's Emerald Necklace, city leaders  engaged the Olmsted Brothers landscape architecture firm to design a park system that took advantage of this majestic setting. Thirty-seven Olmsted designs were implemented; this excursion will visit four of them and travel along additional boulevards of their design. Parks and roads en route include the Puget Sound shoreline in West Seattle, old-growth forest of Schmitz Park, and verdant Seward Park with its spectacular views of Lake Washington. Turning north, the tour will explore Ravenna Park centered on a creek and conclude at  the urban oasis of Green Lake Park. Criss-crossing the city, tour attendees will see not only the steep hills shaped by nature but also the commercially advantageous shipping canals and channels dug by man. Several stops will enable all to leave the coach and immerse themselves in these parks, to smell the salt air, feel the ferns, and savor the views.

Maximum Participants: 26

Fee: $30

Accessibility: Walking, navigating unpaved areas of city parks

Transportation: Coach from the Westin to park destinations around Seattle; return to Westin by coach. Meet your tour wrangler around the North Tower escalators on the Westin's Lobby Level before the 8:30 AM departure. 

Attire: Wear comfortable walking shoes to enjoy the parks and beach. Bring a rain jacket.

Getting in the Game: Three Free Tools that Take You From Flat Data to RDF

Organizer:
Susan Jane Williams, Independent Cataloging and Consulting Services

Speakers:
Greg Reser, Metadata Librarian, UC San Diego (Embedded Metadata and the Info Panel tool)
Matthias Arnold, Heidelberg Research Architecture - Visual Resources, University of Heidelberg (CSV to Core 4 XML Transform tool)
Jeff Mixter, Software Engineer, OCLC Research (Core 4 XML to RDF Transform tool)  


Three free desktop tools (or transforms) have been developed recently. They provide means to embed metadata into images and export them to CSV, transform flat CSV data into VRA Core 4 XML, and transform VRA Core 4 XML into RDF. The three developers will demonstrate each tool, and guide the participants through the use of the tools. A step-by-step sequence will take the users from embedding metadata in images and then CSV (comma separated values) export (alternatively participants can start with their own metadata CSV or Excel file) to VRA Core 4 XML and then to RDF. At each stage there will be discussion of workflows and what data is needed to form validating XML and useful RDF. Users may bring their own local data samples (say 50-500 records) saved in CSV (or Excel) for discussion.

Maximum Participants: 20

 
Fee: $35

My passion is helping libraries share and disseminate their knowledge, services and products with people around the world. The web is fundamental in this process and to that end my current work involves helping libraries be more visible on the web. This includes not only making their data visible but also making themselves visible on the web.

Project Management

Orginizer:
Ryan Brubacher, Senior Instruction+Research Support Specialist, Occidental College

Speakers:
Meghan Musolff, Special Projects Librarian for Library IT, University of Michigan
Jesse Henderson, Digital Services Librarian, University of Wisconsin-Madison


As positions shift, and responsibilities flex, many librarians, archivists and visual resources professionals find themselves working on project-based teams, or in an environment that asks them to manage multiple projects at once for different stakeholders and with different timelines. Taking on this work is rewarding and can expand your role, increasing your value to an institution. But, it can be a new, tricky, and occasionally frustrating way of working. This workshop will address the fundamentals of project management, project management buzzwords, and strategies for success. Lectures and discussion will cover personal and project time management, working across teams and with different personalities, tracking and assessing progress, being flexible (agile), and reporting. Discussion will highlight examples relevant to libraries, archives and museums of different sizes and scope. Workshop facilitators will provide project planning templates, productivity tips and tricks, and other helpful resources. Endorsed by the Education Committee (VRA)

Bainbridge Island Artists' Books Tour

This tour is an excursion for lovers of book arts. The group will travel from downtown Seattle's waterfront by Washington State Ferry across Puget Sound to scenic Bainbridge Island. This scenic ferry ride lasts about 35 minutes and you will have spectacular views of the city and Mt. Rainier (if the sun is out!). The day begins at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, a recently opened museum supporting local art and one that has a unique and special artists' book room and gallery.  Attendees will meet with museum founder and artists' book advocate and collector, Cynthia Sears.  Her collection is phenomenal and the group will have the chance to talk with her as well as examine books.

The group will then travel via pre-arranged transportation to her private home and studio on Bainbridge Island to enjoy a catered lunch and meet personally with six or seven prominent book artists of the region. Each artist will have items on display and will provide a lightning round talk concerning their work. In addition, the private home has permanent exhibits on display.

Upon return to the ferry, participants have the opportunity to enjoy the town of Winslow which is home to many unique art galleries, including Bainbridge Arts and Crafts. Learn more about Arts and Crafts on Bainbridge Island. Ferries run about every 35 minutes back to Seattle, so you will have a unique opportunity to enjoy the Island and its many fine galleries, boutiques and restaurants.

Note: This tour blends walking and private transportation. Led by Jane Carlin, Director of the Collins Library, University of Puget Sound and Sandra Kroupa, Book Arts Librarian, University of Washington attendees will meet at the Westin and walk through Pike Place Market and along the Seattle Waterfront to reach the ferry terminal where they will sail as walk-on passengers. On Bainbridge, the museum is a 0.2 mile walk from the ferry terminal. A shuttle will transport attendees between BIMA and the private home, and then from the private home to the Bainbridge ferry terminal where they will walk on the ferry for the return sailing.

Maximum Participants: 15

Fee: $65

Accessibility: Walking one mile in Seattle; walking 0.2 mile on Bainbridge Island.

Graphic Novels SIG

The Graphic Novels SIG meeting will begin with 2 fifteen minute presentations followed by questions and discussion of other agenda items.

 Presentations:

 Topic: User Needs for Art Library Comic Collections

Presenter: Andrew Wang, Student and Library Assistant, Indiana University

Duration: 15 minutes

Although comic collections have become more prevalent in academic libraries, little research has been conducted on the needs of their users in art libraries. This presentation will summarize a series of interviews conducted in 2015. The information provided by two studio professors from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and two members of the art history department from Indiana University will shed light on this specific user group's research needs and behavior. This will inform librarians to reassess and, hopefully, better utilize their own library's collections.

Topic: Graphic Novel/Comic Collections and the Opportunities They Present for Unique Collection Development, Collaboration, Outreach, and Events

Presenter: Tara Spies Smith, Research Instruction and Outreach Librarian and Subject Area Librarian for Art & Design Librarian, Anthropology, Communication Studies, and Journalism & Mass Communications, Alkek Library, Texas State University.

Duration: 15 minutes

Creating an isolated graphic novel collection can create opportunities for collaboration and outreach to faculty, students, and others. This presentation will cover how a graphic novel collection in a university library serving 37,979 students provides many opportunities for increased usage, promotion of the library, exhibits, and events.

Moving Images and A/V Resources

Speakers:
Johanna Bauman, Pratt Institute
Jodi Hoover, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
Jenni Rodda, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University

Based on VRA's 2014 previous session, Moving Images, Moving Targets: Video and Film as Visual Resources, the session speakers are extending it to a 60 minute SIG for the ARLIS/NA and VRA community built around the Natural Connection theme. 

The discussion will entail an overflow from their previous session which included, an understanding of terms, tools, and workflow necessary to create and manage A/V files, and preparing, archiving, and preserving a variety of formats, including CDs, DVDs, VHS, and 16mm film. 

In this SIG meeting attendees will first hear the previous session speakers in lightening talk format--a quick synthesis of what transpired since their last session, other speakers from the audience if they wish to participate, which will then be followed by group collaboration.  

Johanna Bauman, Pratt Institute--Will discuss her knowledge regarding Pratt's 16mm preservation, approach to the collection and how it's being utilized within its fine art, history of art and film curricula.

Jodi Hoover, University of Maryland, Baltimore County--She will describe how she manages a circulating and streaming video collection as well as the challenges of providing access to media collections using discovery platforms.     

Jenni Rodda, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University--Will discuss how she collects, manages, and produces lecture videos and other content related to the IFA

Pike Place Market Walking Tour

Tour Pike Place Market and learn about its historical significance. This walk will be led by members of the preservation and advocacy group Friends of the Market, including architectural historian Mimi Sheridan.

Established in 1907, the Market is the longest continually run farmer's market in the U.S. and an iconic piece of Seattle, both past and present. Proposed by Seattle City Councilman Thomas Revelle as a solution to the increased demand for produce and goods from the city's nearby farms, he referred to its dedication as “...one of the greatest days in the history of Seattle.”

Prospering in the 1920s and 1930s, the Market was slated for demolition by the 1960s. Architect Victor Steinbrueck rallied citizens to “Save the Market,” resulting in a 1971 voter approved 17-acre historic district and establishment of the Pike Place Market Preservation and Development Authority. Also established in 1971, the original Starbucks cafe at 1912 Pike Place is still in operation.

The future of the Market will be positively affected by the ongoing renovation project of Seattle's downtown waterfront. Learn about the forthcoming Pike Place Market - Waterfront Entrance designed by the Miller Hull Partnership: http://www.millerhull.com/html/inprogress/pikeplace.htm

More information about Pike Place Market: http://www.pikeplacemarket.org

This tour will break at 1:30 PM for those attending afternoon conference sessions at the Westin. The overall tour is likely to run longer and attendees are welcome to stay longer at the Market with our guides.

Maximum Participants: 20

Fee: $15

Accessibility: Walking, standing, maneuvering city streets and busy public areas. Possible cobblestone streets and steep city blocks within the Market.

Transportation: Walking (five blocks to the Market); meet your guide around the North Tower escalators on the Westin's Lobby Level before the 12:30 PM departure.

ARLIS/NA Career Mentoring Program Workshop
ARLIS/NA Career Mentoring Program Workshop
Are you currently in a leadership position within your organization or within ARLIS/NA, or are you hoping to attain a leadership role in the future? The ARLIS/NA Mentoring Subcommittee is focusing its 2016-17 career mentoring program on cultivating relationships between mentors and mentees interested in leadership. This workshop will be the catalyst for the year-long mentoring program, pairing emerging and established leaders in the art library community and providing them with the tools to support and carry out a successful mentoring relationship.

The four-hour workshop is loosely modeled on the 2005 ARLIS/NA Mentoring Program workshop led by Margaret Law, associate director of the University of Alberta Learning Services. Mentoring subcommittee members Jennifer Friedman and Shira Loev Eller will lead the workshop, which is divided into sections for mentees, mentors, and the combined group. The presentation includes an introduction to mentoring; characteristics of mentors, mentees, and the mentoring relationship; realistic goal-setting; appropriate behavior and expectations; methods of communication; and benefits and potential pitfalls of mentoring. The presentation style is through PowerPoint, discussion, group-work, and independent writing exercises.

Those interested in the career mentoring program must complete a separate registration with the Mentoring Subcommittee before registering for this workshop. We will begin accepting applications for mentees in early 2016, so please check back, or watch the ARLIS/NA listserv for more information. 
Maximum Participants: 24 (12 pairs)

Wikipedia Edit-a-thons from Why to Edit

Organizers: 
Kim Collins, Siân Evans, Trudy Jacoby, Heather Slania

Instructors: 
Siân Evans, Heather Slania

Presenters: 
William Blueher, Melanie Emerson, Siân Evans, and Mikayla Lynch 

Wikipedia Edit-a-thons have become a popular way of improving the resource as well as a great way to help new Wikipedians learn to edit. This “train the trainers” workshop targets librarians and visual resources professionals who are new to Wikipedia but would like to learn how to edit Wikipedia pages and run Wikipedia edit-a-thons around local holdings or subjects of their interest. More experienced users are also encouraged to attend to share their experiences, learn more about different projects, and help new Wikipedians learn how to make edits. 

 

Participants will receive an introduction to how Wikipedia works including best practices, policies, and guidelines. Then participants will hear three case studies that will exemplify why they should care about Wikipedia. Following the panel there will be a two hour basic and intermediate edit training session. Finally, participants will end the day learning about the nuts and bolts of running an Edit-a-thon. We hope to schedule pop-up Edit-a-thons throughout the conference with resource guides from various SIGs to flex your newly gained editing skills.

 

Case studies: 

William Blueher will discuss Thomas J. Watson Library's on-going GLAM-Wiki project. A team of librarians and interns have added citations to over 2,000 Wikipedia articles, and as a result Wikipedia now drives over 50% of traffic to Watson's Digital Collections. 

 

Mikayla Lynch will speak about her role as head of the Guggenheim Wikipedia Initiative which is an inter-departmental, cross-institutional effort that involves contributions from nearly all of their museum departments.  The Guggenheim's project is unique in that rather than having a Wikipedian-in-Residence, they've trained six staff members across several departments as editors and essentially built an internal team of Wikipedians. 

 

Siân Evans and Melanie Emerson, Head of the Ricker Library of Architecture and Art at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will discuss the success of the Art+Feminism Edit-a-Thon series, which has been widely recognized as holding the most successful international edit-a-thons in Wikipedia history.

Connecting the Past to the Present: Promoting Cultural Understanding through Collections and Exhibitions
 

Connecting the Past to the Present: Promoting Cultural Understanding through Collections and Exhibitions

In order to fully comprehend the present we must appreciate the past. A global society demands that we move beyond our cultural biases and be open to the views and perspectives of others. Collections and exhibitions that challenge and provoke can encourage dialogue and promote diversity and inclusion. The past is riddled with controversial ideas and painful events. These records and remnants of a painful past live on in libraries, archives and museums for us to learn from. Librarians, archivists and curators play an important role in the development of cultural understanding and awareness. In this session speakers will discuss controversial collections and exhibitions at their institutions and explore some of the challenges encountered in their display and promotion. These include an exhibit on the impact of war on art-making at Ohio University; Japanese American history digital materials, many of which focus on the WWII incarceration, in California State University Archives and Special Collections; and the Mazinbiige Indigenous graphic novel collection held at the University of Manitoba. The speakers will share strategies and best practices for meeting the challenges of safeguarding and providing access to these collections and exhibitions while acknowledging divergent perspectives. Together speakers and participants will explore how to achieve a balance between intellectual freedom/freedom of expression and the need to respect the views of historically marginalized and disadvantaged groups. Organized by the ARLIS/NA Diversity Committee.

Natural Connections between Museum Libraries, Education, and Visual Literacy

Natural Connections between Museum Libraries, Education, and Visual Literacy

Both the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are fortunate to have dedicated education libraries open to the public. Anna Elam, the Seattle Art Museum’s Wyckoff Teacher Resource Center (TRC) Librarian Educator, will lead a discussion to explore connections between museum libraries and museum education for successful, engaging programming. The session will begin with two educators at SAM giving short descriptions (15 minutes) of how they work with the TRC: Anna Allegro, Manager of School & Educator Programs, will explore using TRC books and education objects in docent-led tours and books, audio/visual resources, and the Outreach Suitcase program in educator trainings; and Lindsay Huse Kestin, Museum Educator for Teen, Family, and Multigenerational Programs, will outline how TRC resources support summer camps and art-activity spaces. Anna Elam will summarize with suggestions for foraging relationships with education staff (10 minutes). Leah High, Public Services Librarian at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will introduce picture books as tools librarians, educators, and families can use for developing visual literacy and art appreciation (15 minutes). The moderator will guide attendees in a brainstorming activity outlining potential collaboration points and program ideas for their institution using strategies outlined in the session (10 minutes). We will end with questions from the audience for all session presenters (15 minutes). Session attendees will leave with concrete strategies for successful programs.

Terra Fluxus: Surveying the Digital Information Landscape of Environmental Design

Terra Fluxus: Surveying the Digital Information Landscape of Environmental Design

This session will be recorded

Librarians and archivists play vital roles in stewarding our environment and its record. Informing and documenting its greatest changes in the digital age compels us to traverse an untamed landscape. Increasingly sophisticated information systems and services enrich the evidence base for highly sustainable design practice, but complicate its evermore iterative process. As students, practitioners, and scholars tell the story of an increasingly precious planet, so must we seek to sustain its most wild and fragile forms of documentation. This session will highlight the lessons learned by panelists from leading institutions of environmental design, its history, and its future. They will survey a new landscape of resources, their challenges, and plans to protect them for future generations alongside legacy resources. They will share new models for providing the visual and geographic reference materials upon which the design research process depends, including new competencies and portfolios among professional library staff. They will benchmark best preservation practices for their composite products, including illustrative and construction documents, in both corporate and academic research environments. Each will share case studies that illustrate their respective experience providing these services to design students, practitioners, and/or scholars.

Connecting the Dots: Using Geolocation Data To Support Interactivity and Data Visualization

Connecting the Dots: Using Geolocation Data To Support Interactivity and Data Visualization

Geohumanities is an emerging field that applies geospatial methods and approaches to a variety of humanities-oriented projects and initiatives. This panel highlights several projects that incorporate maps and/or mapping to help approach a research area and/or develop research support for an academic community. The highlighted projects include an interactive global map contributed to by undergraduate architecture students’ engaged in exploring cross-disciplinary research methods as part of a foundational design course, two interactive map projects that have been designed as finding aids for art historical resources, a map that focuses on the history of Los Angeles art museums revealing questions about the role of place in the creation and sharing of art, and a mapping project that employs one item from an archive to make connections to related archival materials.

Scope Drift: New Roles and Responsibilities in Visual Resources
Scope Drift: New Roles and Responsibilities in Visual Resources
In project management, “scope drift” or “scope creep” refers to a continuous expansion of the scope of a project; in this session we will explore the same phenomenon within the VR profession as a mechanism for innovation and collaboration. This session will celebrate the opportunities created by scope drift and focus on a few successful instances drawn from VR professionals in ARLIS/NA and VRA. In doing so, the session will encourage VR professionals to think proactively about avenues for contribution beyond the traditional scope of their positions while prompting non-VR attendees to reconsider the roles of their VR peers and think more openly about natural sites for collaboration.  Examples of scope drift in VR include new and challenging media formats, participation in open access initiatives, teaching, repository development and management, alternative formats for print-disabilities, data management, and specialized labs dealing with things like GIS and 3D printing, scanning, and design.  The joint conference is the ideal environment in which to call attention to the changing reality of the VR  profession and to call attention to especially successful changes and collaborations that have been driven by scope drift. In this era of “hack your library school” specialization and interdisciplinary collaboration, scope drift can be regarded as a propulsive force by which to carve out niche roles and do meaningful work. Endorsed by Education Committee (VRA) and the Visual Resources Division (ARLIS/NA).

What We Talk about When We Talk about “Rights Management”
Sponsored by the Banff Centre
This session will be recorded

What We Talk about When We Talk about “Rights Management”
As those who work with visual materials know, nothing bedevils both patrons and visual resources professionals like rights management. When it comes to rights and reproductions issues, “how do you handle XYZ?” is a common refrain among colleagues and all too often VR professionals are thrust into handling R&R with little guidance, experience, or institutional backing. In this 90-minute session, presenters will reflect on their varied experiences in rights management, addressing topics such as copyright research, digitization strategies, licensing agreements and use of Creative Commons, public domain images, and revenue generation. Ideally, this session will lift the veil on rights management and foster discussion of common standards and best practices among presenters and attendees. To that end, the session will consist of eight lightning talks (approximately eight minutes in length), leaving ample time for Q&A.

How can the connection between the ARLIS/NA and VRA DH SIGs continue beyond this joint conference? Bring your ideas and consider how you might help your SIG be what you need it to be.

This discussion will be followed by an invitation to those who attended Tuesday's THATCamp to share what they took away from the experience and open those topics to conversation.

Around the World in 80 Minutes: A circumnavigation of art library projects, collections, and services in Latin America and Eastern Europe

Building strong partnerships and programming in an international context, seeking out opportunities for dialogue and collaboration beyond our borders, and providing a forum for resource sharing are important strategic objectives of ARLIS/NA. Through the generosity of the Getty Foundation, 20 Latin American and Eastern European art information professionals from 12 countries are participating in the ARLIS/NA + VRA 3rd Joint Conference.  Five of our international colleagues from as far apart as Brazil and Russia will share their professional perspectives, experiences, and challenges.

Jose Flores Ramos will explore the role of film in architectural research and education. Svetlana Kostanyan will present a case study of a collaborative digital platform, highlighting new technology to create and integrate digital resources for museum libraries. Magdalena Mazik will describe education projects at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cracow aimed at redefining art books.

Do It, Make It: Current Initiatives and Advice on Creating a Makerspace in Academic Libraries and Visual Resources Centers

Do It, Make It: Current Initiatives and Advice on Creating a Makerspace in Academic Libraries and Visual Resources Centers

Makerspaces are DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. In libraries, they may have 3D printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools, among other things. Our confirmed speakers, who have varied experiences with makerspaces, include the following individuals:  Megan Lotts is the Art Librarian at Rutgers. Lotts has extensive experience working with makerspaces, including hosting pop-up makerspaces and creating the Art Library Lego Playing Station that engages with design students. Cynthia Frank is the Architecture Librarian and Director of the Visual Resources Collection at the University of Maryland. Frank helps manage a library makerspace, and will discuss the set-up, training, and use of the makerspace as well as highlighting a student project using 3D printers for a History of Western Architecture class. Morgan Pershing is the Adult Services Librarian, Santa Clara City Library. Pershing created a low-cost creative art making space for adults in a public library. Chris Strasbaugh is the Director of Visual Resources at Vanderbilt University.  This presentation was a collaborative project that came through a partnership with Sara Sterkenburg, the Cataloging & Exhibition Services Librarian at Vanderbilt University.  The intial project was a general overview to create awareness of Makerspaces in the Nashville area.  The presentation goes further in discussing the role of 3D scanning and low-cost materials in a making center on campus.

E-mania! -- The Present and Future of Electronic Art Book Publishing

E-mania! — the present and future of electronic art book publishing

This session will be recorded

The art book publishing world has started to plunge its feet into electronic publishing with a variety of results.  Some art e-book publishers have made beautiful e-book applications for tablets, replete with audio, video, and more, but these publication apps are ephemeral: over time these publications will be rendered un-viewable as their hardware becomes obsolete. Others publishers have created highly functional flat files, better for our preservation requirements but lacking all of the multi-media potential that newer more interactive technologies offer.  Most publishers have simply scanned existing print publications, sometimes with all images included, sometimes with images redacted because of copyright restrictions.  Other constraints on access to e-book content concern evolving sales and distribution models for library ownership, licensing, and archiving.  Another complicating factor is the lack of available descriptive and technical metadata to support access to e-books regardless of format. For example, some institutions have digitized published materials for free access, but have yet to make their metadata available to libraries to help disseminate their new digital publications.  And finally, few publishers or institutions have grappled with issues of longevity with these digital products and associated media files.    We hope to gather e-book experts to encourage a natural connection between creators, consumers and stewards of these materials.  We plan to invite people from multiple sectors of our community engaged in publishing, producing and acquiring art e-publications.  Publishers in the field of electronic art book publishing and librarians who are grappling with access and longevity will present their thoughts on what exists and how we as producers and consumers can together create the best possible result for our research community.

From Studio to Firm: Librarian Strategies to Support Materials Education and Research
From Studio to Firm: Librarian Strategies to Support Materials Education and Research
Materials collections in art, design, and architecture libraries support the curriculum of their respective schools and departments as a library-laboratory hybrid for haptic exploration and inspiration. They also serve to prepare students for post-graduate careers in industries that directly utilize these same materials: as consumers and designers, with clients and with other practitioners. Materials collections are launched or expanded at colleges and universities on practically a monthly basis. Materials collections are also located in design firms of all sizes to underscore the need for continued contact with materials regarding product information, currency, agency, and innovation as an on-site resource. Commercial- and firm-based materials librarians are increasingly vocal and visible within the ARLIS/NA Materials Special Interest Group. This session brings together six librarians from materials collections in art and architecture schools; a high-profile architecture, planning, and design firm; and one of the planet’s most recognizable product brands. Through successive presentations and moderated discussion, together they will speak to the unique and overlapping needs of their patrons and constituencies; describe mission and programming; and identify strategies to better understand the solid trajectory from student learning to professional expectation.

Freeway Park: Halprin's Answer to Superhighway Supremacy

Funded largely by the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956, the expansion of U.S. Interstate 5 through Seattle's urban core involved the moving or demolition of 4,500 existing buildings between 1960 and 1967. I-5 cut a path along the Downtown's eastern periphery, creating a two-to-three-block-wide  gouge that separated it from the Beacon Hill, First Hill and Capitol Hill neighborhoods.  In 1966, the noted California landscape architect, Lawrence Halprin, published his book, Freeways, in which he wrote both of the highway's artistic elements, seen particularly in their structural supports, and its destructive capacities. In most cases, Halprin realized that the auto's intrusion through urban areas brought serious challenges to pedestrian activities and public health. As part of Seattle’s Forward Thrust initiative in 1969, when funds for a broad array of public amenities were approved by city voters, money was allocated to build a lid over 5.5 acres above I-5. Due to his recent theorizing on freeways, Halprin was hired to build a natural oasis on top of the urban wound. He devised his Freeway Park <http://tclf.org/content/freeway-park-past-present-and-future> to have three sections or plazas, each of which had a distinct character suggested by the movement of water within each. The park's hardscape had the characteristic "brutalist" vocabulary that Halprin preferred in the 1970s, with planters constructed of board-formed concrete. Planters and berms had a vaguely natural look, akin to rock facings, but were shunned by many as cold and gloomy. Opened on July 4, 1976, the park has undergone many changes necessitated by the 1980s construction of the Washington State Convention and Trade Center nearby, vandalism and homeless encampments. Today, the park retains most of its original character, and ranks as one of Halprin's greatest and most under-utilized works. This tour will consider the reasons for its fame and notoriety, critical acclaim and public underuse.

Solo Art Information Professionals SIG

The Solo Art Information Professionals Special Interest Group acts as a platform for discussion for ARLIS/NA members who are solo professionals. Solo art information professionals are librarians or visual resource curators who have no professional peers within their immediate department. They often serve as the head of the library or visual collection and may have support staff such as assistants, interns, or volunteers. They are found in all types of organizations including special  libraries, art and architecture school libraries, museum libraries, branch libraries, and independent art agencies. For solo professionals, ARLIS/NA provides a crucial means to connect with the wider community. This special interest group enables solo professionals to discuss the issues, challenges, and opportunities unique to their positions.

Connecting Social Justice to the Workplace: Issues of Diversity in Our Professional Lives

Connecting Social Justice to the Workplace: Issues of Diversity in Our Professional Lives 

The issues of diversity, inclusion, and addressing a wide spectrum of social identities are urgently important on campuses and in cultural institutions across the country. This session aims to provide attendees with a better understanding of the issues of diversity and inclusion and how they impact our unique workplaces, and with a tangible set of tools and resources for continuing education and making positive changes in their home institutions.  Wednesday’s session, “Connecting the Past to the Present: Promoting Cultural Understanding through Collections and Exhibitions,” will address similar issues, while this session will take a broader view, focusing on presenting and discussing the principles of diversity and inclusion and how they manifest themselves in our daily professional lives. These two sessions should complement each other well. 

Moderator:
Lesley Chapman, Visual Resources Curator, Colgate University


Speakers:
Processing for Social Justice: Community-based Archives & the Memory of The Miracle Bookmobile
Kelly Besser, Project Archivist, UCLA Special Collections

This presentation will discuss the challenges and rewards of engaging in social justice through community-based archives, and The Miracle Bookmobile’s activation as a queer memory project. The Miracle is a community-based bookmobile which has redistributed thousands of zines, books, and comics over the last decade at community events and spaces in Los Angeles and Oakland. By collecting and redistributing free literature, The Miracle reclaims public space, nurtures an anti-capital gifting culture, and makes radical queer and feminist literature accessible to communities across the Golden State.

LIS Microaggressions Project: Exploring the Lived Experiences of Librarians
Simone Fujita, Liaison Librarian and Outreach Coordinator, James Lemont Fogg Memorial Library, Art Center College of Design, Pasadena

Microaggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults toward individuals from marginalized communities. In libraries, this can occur among library employees or between library employees and patrons. In this presentation, Simone Fujita, art librarian and Zine Project Manager for the LIS Microaggressions Project, will discuss the ways in which the LIS Microaggressions blog and zine create spaces for those working in libraries, archives and information fields to share their experiences with microaggressions within the profession.

"TILE: Fostering Inclusive Practices in the Classroom at Johns Hopkins University”
Macie Hall, Senior Instructional Designer, Center for Educational Resources, Johns Hopkins University
When professors foster inclusivity in the classroom, they not only help students learn about some of the issues surrounding diverse populations, but also help give students the voice to be more conversant about diverse issues in their fields and the world. Most important, however, is the engagement of students who otherwise may feel marginalized when their own unique experiences remain invisible. The Toolkit for Inclusive Learning Environments (TILE) was created at Johns Hopkins University to spark conversation and share best practices for fostering diversity and inclusion in the classroom, and includes not only best practices but a repository of specific examples that all faculty are welcome to use.

Irlanda Jacinto, University Archivist, University of Wyoming
Irlanda’s presentation will focus on her experience as the first woman of color to serve as University Archivist at the University of Wyoming. She will discuss barriers and mental health issues she faced during her first seven months in Laramie, Wyoming; with the intent of contextualizing them to broader issues affecting diversity in information professions. 

"Developing Intergroup Relations and Intercultural Competency”
Darlene Nichols, Foundations and Grants Librarian, University of Michigan

Strong intergroup relations and intercultural competency are critical to support honest inclusion in the academy. Library workers who interact with people from a wide range of intersecting identities benefit from understanding the history and current conditions of various social identity groups in the United States. We also need to understand our own cultures and what elements of our culture that we assume are “normal” are really cultural constructions that may not apply to everyone. Understanding of self and others can only help us to improve our communications and services to each person who enters our facilities.

Duty Now for the Future: Connecting Libraries, Library Schools, and New Librarians through Internships
Duty Now for the Future: Connecting Libraries, Library Schools, and New Librarians through Internships
Internships are a vital part of both library school and libraries. Students need the practical education to transition into a professional position upon graduation, and many libraries depend upon these interns to assist with core library functions. In spite of the increasingly prominent role of internships in libraries, very little critical attention is paid to what is now a deeply ingrained aspect of our profession. What should MLS students demand from internships? How should libraries craft meaningful and legal internships that do not exploit the labor of these MLS students? How can library schools support this? Might an internship/apprenticeship model prove more beneficial to MLS students than the abstract lessons taught in the classroom? These sorts of questions need to be seriously addressed by library professionals, and this session will interrogate the role of internships in libraries today. John Lindaman will discuss Watson Library's innovative new intern fellowship that provides students with a broad range of practical experiences in an art museum library. Sumitra Duncan and Kim Loconto will examine the work they’ve done with IMLS interns at NYARC, a consortium of NYC art libraries. Walter Schlect will discuss both his extensive internship experience as well as his time as Pratt’s SILSSA President, where he helped connect MLS students with relevant internship programs. Helene Williams will discuss her work with students on fieldwork/internships at the University of Washington’s iSchool.

RDF and LOD in Use Today

RDF and LOD in Use Today

This session will be recorded

Previous sessions have dealt with RDF (Resource Description Framework) and LOD (Linked Open Data) as introductions and overviews of the topic; while it is still early days in terms of adoption, this session will highlight actual applications of RDF and LOD in use now. (4 speakers, 15-20 min each plus Q&A)   Julia Simic, moderator and presenter  Julia will talk about her work in migrating data from CONTENTdm to Hydra (converting to RDF,) including creating URIs for local terms not covered in other controlled vocabularies.  Jeff Mixter will talk about research applications currently in development at OCLC.  Rob Sanderson will talk about his work with IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) which provides interoperability in the use of images and image viewers by a set of common APIs including using LOD links to retrieve image details (rather than using proprietary zooming software).  Cory Lampert, University of Nevada, Las Vegas will talk about their Linked Open Data Project, a 2012 study which resulted in practical implementation and data transformation guidelines, workflows and tools, including visualization tools.

Reshaping Library Instruction within Art & Design Education: Experimenting and implementing the Info Lit Framework
Reshaping Library Instruction within Art & Design Education: Experimenting and implementing the Info Lit Framework
The Academic and College Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy, released in February 2015, gives instruction librarians a new opportunity to emphasize the natural connection between the library and the creative and academic work  of art students, artists, and scholars. This panel will explore the ways that instruction librarians are experimenting with and implementing the new Framework and threshold concepts in the art school/program environment.  It will ask: How are art and design librarians interpreting this document within the context of their community and connecting the conceptual Framework to their pedagogical practices?

Presenters will share their unique approaches to working with the new ACRL Framework, which includes emphasizing visual literacy, developing teaching tools and resources, and creating learning opportunities, in hopes that attendees will find valuable takeaways and ideas. This session will be particularly relevant to art librarians with an interest in information literacy instruction in higher education.

Contemporary Glass: Seattle and Beyond
Contemporary Glass: Seattle and Beyond
This panel brings together an archivist, a librarian, a curator, an educator and an artist, each working with some aspect of contemporary glass and glassmaking. Perry Price, Director of Education at the American Craft Council, will discuss the history of studio glass, recounting how glassmaking moved out of a factory setting and into the artist's studio.

Diversity Forum
Diversity Forum

Libraries are serving an increasingly diverse community of users. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) from 2007-2018, enrollment of Hispanic/Latinos in institutions of higher learning will increase by 38% and projections include 32% for American Indian/ Alaska natives, 29% for Asian/ Pacific Islanders and 26% for African Americans or Blacks. In the National Endowment for the Arts 2008 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts, about 26% of non-Hispanic whites, 15% of Hispanics, 12 % of African Americans, and 23% of adults in other racial/ethnic categories (largely Asian Americans and Native Americans) visited an art museum or gallery in that year. 

 A Diversity Forum will assist in better preparing the membership to: discuss and learn more about diversity and inclusion issues that they may encounter within the profession and the workplace; the Academic College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Diversity Standards: Cultural Competency for Academic Libraries guidelines; the forthcoming diversity section of the ARLIS/NA Strategic Plan, and facilitate making natural connections between them. This Diversity Forum concept is not new. In March 2003, at the Baltimore conference, the former chairs, along with ARLIS/NA President Allen Townsend and Past-President Daniel Starr, organized a Diversity Forum to discuss diversity issues. There was another Diversity Forum in 2008. It has been 8 years since there was a Diversity Forum at the annual conference. The joint conference is the perfect venue to discuss commonalities we encounter between Visual Resources and Art Librarianship.

Participants will learn about current issues facing librarianship within the context of diversity and further how art librarianship fit into it. Participants should be prepared to actively engage in group learning experiences and will take away tips on how to move forward with diversity and inclusion issues in the workplace and ARLIS/NA.

Retired Members SIG

Co-Coordinators: Joan M. Benedetti and Margaret Webster
 

The first meeting of the brand new Retired Members SIG will be a lively discussion of retirement and ways to stay involved organically in ARLIS/NA.  Are we "dinosaurs"?  Can participation in ARLIS/NA keep us current?  What will we continue to care about?  What can the ARLIS/NA organization do to reach out to us?  What do we have post-retirement to offer our colleagues?  How can we contribute to ARLIS/NA? Of course the answers to these questions will be different for each of us. 

 The meeting's agenda will include time to briefly introduce ourselves to each other and to talk about possible projects that could be sponsored by us.  Eric Wolf, Chair, ARLIS/NA Documentation Committee, will speak about how we can help the Documentation Committee to "better understand the history of both ARLIS as an organization and the profession itself.”  Do we want to plan something special for the 2017 New Orleans conference?  Should it be something retirement-related or something that might appeal to a wider range of ARLIS/NA members?  And what can we do in between conferences?

 Our inaugural meeting is scheduled for 7 – 8 am, but we may stay for further discussion until 8:30.  Come to meet and greet long-time and new friends; stay to help us figure out our ARLIS/NA future!

South Lake Union Walking Tour

Explore a rapidly growing part of Seattle with its forest of yellow building cranes, throngs of Amazon employees, distinctive urban design elements, and the calm of Lake Union.

This tour will begin with a ride on the South Lake Union Streetcar to Lake Union, passing through the newest buildings in Seattle and through the Denny Regrade where Denny Hill was removed in the early 1900s. This has been an area of great change over the past 100 years.

Once at Lake Union Park, you will disembark and be able to enjoy the morning over Lake Union at the site of the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) and the Center for Wooden Boats. From this vantage point, you will be able to see Gas Works Park across the water and the world-renowned Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center  to the East.

From there, the walk continues south towards the Cascade P-Patch and the flagship location of REI, where you will find the company's famed forest and waterfall. The return route will pass by Cornish College of the Arts, the visual and performing arts college of Seattle.

Total walking distance is approximately 1.75 - 2 miles.

Maximum Participants: 15

Fee: $10

Accessibility: Walking, standing, maneuvering city streets, getting on and off streetcar.

Transportation: streetcar and extensive walking. Meet your tour wrangler around the North Tower escalators on the Westin's Lobby Level before the 7:30 AM departure.

Building New Models: Library as Learning Lab

Session organized by the Association of Architecture School Librarians and cross-listed with the 2016 AASL Annual Conference

Building New Models: Library as Learning Lab

Changes in academia are providing an opportunity to rethink the role of the librarian and the library. Each of these speakers present an instance in which they re-imagined how the library or the librarians can best engage with their community – through re-envisioning the library model, expanding the notion of architectural collections, and partnering in the design process.

Charmed, I’m Sure: Introducing New Users to Libraries and Visual Resources Collections
Charmed, I’m Sure: Introducing New Users to Libraries and Visual Resources Collections
Whether it’s an orientation session with students or a one-on-one appointment with a visiting researcher, meeting with new users is an important opportunity to demonstrate the value of the specialized collections in art and design libraries and visual resources collections. This session will showcase a variety of successful methods of introducing collections and turning new users into repeat visitors.

The speakers will present case studies of innovative events, intriguing orientations, and constructive assignments that engage students, faculty and staff members, and researchers with the collections. Megan Lotts will explain how a Lego® playing station helped new landscape architecture students at Rutgers University learn about the libraries and information literacy. Amelia Nelson will describe how she uses Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) in information literacy sessions with students, free-choice learners and art professionals at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Ellen Petraits will show several visual and hands-on strategies used to reach the studio-based art school community at the Rhode Island School of Design. Laura Schwartz will talk about how a party for incoming graduate students at the Fine Arts Library at the University of Texas at Austin can be so much more than festivities with the right program, librarians, and administrators and a purpose. Amy Trendler will report on the interactive exercises she has integrated into orientation sessions for new undergraduate students in architecture and urban planning at Ball State University.

Managing the Many Makers of Media: Timely Tools and Tactics
Managing the Many Makers of Media: Timely Tools and Tactics

Information professionals find themselves managing and preserving an ever- expanding array of digital media, including audio and video. This session will explore a number of resources, new tools, and strategies for accessing and managing oral histories, licensed streaming products, and video files complete with the need to address the associated metadata and long-term preservation issues. Two of the speakers focus their work on Japanese American history, making historical and newly developed archival materials—documents, photographs, oral histories, transcripts, and videos—on a timely topic that has enormous potential for scholarly interpretation, accessible, searchable, understandable, and safely preserved for research and public access. The Penn State librarians are tackling how academic libraries are licensing streaming resources to provide video in support of teaching and learning, reviewing the technical complexities of delivery, difficulties of discovery and usability, and the administrative challenges of new business and service models. Utilizing a new cloud-computing platform with dynamic metadata capabilities and pluggable support for new technologies is the topic of the University of Minnesota information professionals who are trying to ensure that storage, categorization, and preservation is not a hindrance to academic innovation. All of the presentations show how digital resources and repositories can be user-centric and feed new research and technological experimentation in teaching and learning through functional content delivery, metadata enhancement, and contextualization.

New Voices in the Profession

New Voices in the Profession

Returning for its tenth year, New Voices in the Profession provides professionals new to art librarianship or visual resources the opportunity to present topics from exceptional coursework, such as a master's thesis, or topics with which they are engaged early in their professional life. New professionals are defined as either students in MLIS or Master's programs leading to a career in art librarianship or visual resources, or those within five years of Master's level study. For many, this is their first professional speaking engagement.

This panel began at the ARLIS/NA 2006 Annual Conference in Banff and has since received wide attention and praise.

Seattle Public Library and Environs Architectural Tour: "Redefining the Public Sphere"

In this 1.5-hour tour, we shall focus on the Main Library within the Seattle Public Library system, designed by the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in early 2000s. At the time of its design and construction, a larger debate about the privatization of public space had been raging since the Reagan Era. Seattle voters in 1996 passed the Libraries for All bond issue that laid out an unprecedented amount for the construction of a new main library and the building or renovation of all branch libraries. In the city, these spaces were viewed as common public realms, highly valued and worthy of being expanded and, to an extent, glorified. Seattle undertook a wide-ranging public works campaign during the 1990-2010 period, when not only libraries but other public edifices, such as the city hall, police and fire stations were also systematically reshaped. The Seattle Public Library Main Building became one of the most highly publicized of the mid-2000s, and stands out as a strong public statement, indicating that citizens of this city valued public buildings and libraries, in particular, as common meeting places for all strata of society.

More history on the building: http://pcad.lib.washington.edu/building/3151/

Maximum Participants: 15

Fee: $10

Accessibility: Walking, standing, navigating city streets.

Transportation: : Light rail from the Westin to the Seattle Public Library. Walking in the vicinity of the library and return to the Westin by foot, weather permitting. Meet your tour wrangler around the North Tower escalators on the Westin's Lobby Level before the 12:30 PM departure.

Connecting Collections on the Open Web: Arquigrafia, PHAROS, and Florentine Renaissance Drawings: A Linked Catalogue for the Semantic Web
Connecting Collections on the Open Web: Arquigrafia, PHAROS, and Florentine Renaissance Drawings: A Linked Catalogue for the Semantic Web

All three presentations in this session discuss the process of bringing diverse collections into collaborative environments on the open web. Each also touches on the value of the projects to arts researchers. Arquigrafia is an open web environment dedicated to the dissemination of architecture images with a special focus on Brazilian architecture and urban spaces. Built on the collection of photographic images from the Audiovisual Sector of the School of Architecture and Urbanism Library at the University of São Paulo, the goal of Arquigrafia is to gather institutions and private users in the same internet environment. PHAROS, an international consortium of fourteen photo archives, is committed to creating a common platform for research on images of works of art through consolidated access. Members are currently engaged in projects that test the viability of cross-institutional image and documentation sharing by exploring the benefits of computer vision technology for image recognition and analysis, and by mapping historical documentation (provenance, attribution histories, etc.) to the Conceptual Reference Model developed by the International Committee for Documentation (CIDOC). Florentine Renaissance Drawings: A Linked Catalogue for the Semantic Web aims to develop the first online database of Florentine Renaissance drawings by creating Linked Open Data from three editions of Bernard Berenson’s foundational text, The Drawings of the Florentine Painters. The goals of the project are to convert portions of Berenson’s publication to RDF using the CIDOC-CRM, to provide search interface and visualization services that will support resource discovery and data analysis; and to interlink with external datasets.

Creating Library Learning Ecologies
Creating Library Learning Ecologies
S.R. Ranaganathan's fifth law of library science offers a compelling challenge to all librarians: "The Library is a Growing Organism." This session will explore how librarians have encouraged the growth of natural connections by collaborating to teach, manage collections, and design spaces. Variously working with first nations communities, studio art faculty, students, or science librarians, each presentation will deal with a unique collaboration that connected library services to a larger ecosystem.

Demonstrating Relevance: Reinforcing the Value of the Art and Architecture Library through Outreach and Assessment
Demonstrating Relevance: Reinforcing the Value of the Art and Architecture Library through Outreach and Assessment
This session demonstrates ways to use outreach and assessment to reinforce and communicate the value of academic art and architecture libraries to our communities.

One way to overcome the challenge of connecting undergraduate art students and the academic library is to change their perceptions by demonstrating that the library can be a site for exploration, inspiration, research, and innovation by artists. Alex Chappell will discuss the Library Artist in Residence program at Claremont Colleges Library, in which a professional artist creates new artwork that engages with library spaces or collections while also working with art students and installing a public exhibition of the artwork in the library.

The University of North Carolina Charlotte’s architecture branch library is creating a proposal for a flexible space redesign based on the needs and use patterns of students. Sara DeWaay will give an overview of the assessment methods used including surveys, flipcharts, and observation, as well as the incorporation of students’ ideas into the design process through an advisory group and creative brainstorming activities.

Kristina Keogh and Stephen Patton will discuss their research into closings of art branch libraries and will offer recommendations for tracking and sharing consistent data about art libraries in a normalized manner, allowing art librarians to begin making connections among their peers. Through these means, the assertion of the unique nature of the art and design library can be evaluated and current and potential future value can be assessed and advocated for in anticipation of guiding change.

Crowdsourcing Contemporary Art: The D. James Dee Archive
Crowdsourcing Contemporary Art: The D. James Dee Archive
This interactive, BYOD (bring your own device) session will provide the opportunity for attendees to participate in an exciting project with enormous potential for collaborative contemporary art research. Artstor has developed gamified crowdsourcing software called Arcades that is currently being used to catalog an enormous collection of contemporary art images, the D. James Dee Archive. After an introductory presentation and demo on using Arcades by Ian McDermott, participants will use the software and provide feedback over the course of this free flowing, 60 minute un-conference-style session. Acquired in 2013, the D. James Dee Archive comprises over 150,000 images of contemporary art exhibited in New York City from the 1970s until 2013, and includes Jean-Michel Basquiat, Elizabeth Murray, Robert Gober, Claes Oldenberg, Hannah Wilke, and Jasper Johns. Many of the works depicted have entered private collections or are otherwise unavailable to the public, making the Dee Archive a crucial resource for contemporary art historians. However, it will “take a village” to catalog and make the Dee Archive available for research. The knowledge of visual resources curators, librarians, art historians, artists, curators, and students is essential to the success of this endeavor. In keeping with the conference theme, this active session will highlight the natural connections and shared values between VRA and ARLIS/NA members.

Unlocking Images, Ideas, and Content: Open Access Images as a Key to Enabling Art and Scholarly Innovation
Sponsored by the Art History/Classics Library, University of California Berkeley

Unlocking Images, Ideas, and Content: Open Access Images as a Key to Enabling Art and Scholarly Innovation

The movement to open access images is unlocking the use of images. Many libraries, museums, galleries, and archives have adopted new, less restrictive rights for their digital image collections, including many that have open access image policies, where their high-resolution public domain images are free to use for a multitude of purposes. This new paradigm for image use is allowing for unprecedented creative freedom that is unleashing innovative projects. Indeed, many new developments in art practice and scholarship rely on this newly open content: open access publishing, digital art history, and remix art are all making use of open images. This panel will draw connections between open access images and digital humanities projects; as well as spotlight how museums, libraries and archives are fostering this creativity-sparking, free flow of content. This panel is co-hosted by VRA’s Intellectual Property Committee and ARLIS/NA’s Public Policy Committee.

OpenGLAM: History and Issues
Dorothy Howard, a member of the OpenGLAM Working Group, will give an overview of the movement, as well as outline critical issues for open images.

The Openness of Digital Images
Sum Wai Yuan Hedren and Dr. Lee Chu Keong will present on how art museums, in general, play significant roles in education today. They are constantly opening up their collections for access in the digital world. However, how open are they in providing access to the digital images of their collections?

Open Resources for Discovery and Learning
Marika Sarvilahti will present a case from Aalto University Library and Archive in Helsinki, Finland, where they have taken our first steps towards providing open cultural heritage to increase interaction and foster engagement with users.

Artists' Books: Vehicles for Social Change
Sponsored by Puget Sound Book Artists and the San Fransico Museum of Modern Art

From the moment Gutenberg's Bible was set to print, books have played a role in shaping society. The enduring legacy of the book as a powerful vehicle for social transformation is just as significant today as it was over five hundred years ago. This session will focus on how artists’ books can help generate dialog in the classroom about social and environmental stewardship as well as offer opportunities for personal expression. This will be an interactive session, where after presentations by artists whose work focuses on issues of social and environmental stewardship and community engagement through exhibits and educational programming, attendees will engage in discussions that focus on ways to incorporate artists’ books in the classroom and in community settings to generate dialog about social and environmental issues, as well as how the book can be used as a vehicle for personal expression. The local artists selected for this panel have one theme in common – they all challenge the viewer to confront the wide breadth of issues affecting contemporary society including the environment, social justice, climate change and equality.  Artists’ books provoke the viewer to engage in addressing these issues as well as create opportunities for dialog whether in the gallery, in the classroom, or in the community.

Engaging Change: Thriving amidst Shifting Library Landscapes
Engaging Change: Thriving amidst Shifting Library Landscapes
This session will address the theme of living through change, whether that change is unexpected or carefully planned. Change can encompass many situations, such as building renovations, branches merging with main libraries, major staffing changes, or institutional reorganizations.  In this time of shifting patron needs, new technologies, and tightening budgets, librarians need to be agile and open to change, while maintaining a commitment to core values of service and preservation.  
 
This session, consisting of three 15-20 minute presentations, will introduce pertinent case studies from art librarians who have experienced major changes in their institutions:  Shira Loev Eller will discuss the integration of the Corcoran Library into GW Libraries, resulting from the merger of the Corcoran College of Art + Design with The George Washington University.  Sally Sims Stokes will contrast the University of Maryland’s acquisition of the National Trust for Historic Preservation Library in the 1980s with ongoing issues surrounding the continued existence of the Art and Architecture Libraries at the University.  Leslie Abrams will discuss the arc of changes that have taken place at the UC San Diego libraries since the early 1990s, including major renovations undertaken to create a unified Arts Library in 2008 and the organizational elimination of all subject-based libraries in 2011.

Presenters will share lessons learned about living through change, including administrative or managerial best practices and methods for communication with stakeholders.  The increase in the pace of change, as well as factors driving change in libraries, will also be addressed.

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Uktena Monster: Subject Cataloging for Images
Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Uktena Monster: Subject Cataloging for Images

The Uktena monster is a mythical cosmic creature of darkness from the Mississippian period in Native North America. Many catalogers find the prospect of subject indexing so daunting that they don’t know where to start, so they don’t.  As image collections move into centralized repositories and become accessible to users from multiple disciplines, adding more descriptive content to their metadata can bring the images to the light of day for more people, making them more valuable resources. This hybrid panel and interactive Special Interest Group discussion will begin with three presentations on new approaches to subject cataloging for images and comparisons of image descriptions from different sources. A free-ranging discussion about establishing best practices for effectively adding subject descriptions to image records will follow the presentations, considering work flow and setting parameters for inclusion and exhaustivity. We will invite attendees to participate in a group subject cataloging exercise with images and sample descriptive terms and  audience suggestions. We will provide handouts with references to the current VRAF publication Cataloging Cultural Objects and its recommendations for creating subject and concept authorities and other current materials on subject cataloging for images and create a contact list for continuing the discussion.

Images have become ubiquitous in public discourse, yet the cataloging records in our databases tend to include sparse if any subject descriptions. Subject cataloging makes natural connections possible between traditional users of visual images and a potential broader audience.

Speaker:

Sarah Bergmann
Director, The Pollinator Pathway
www.pollinatorpathway.com

Sarah Bergmann is a design thinker working across ecology, design, planning and culture. She is the founder of the Pollinator Pathway, a living essay in landscape that responds to humanity’s influence as an ecosystem. She is the winner of the Betty Bowen Award and the Stranger Genius Award, and her work has been praised by NPR, Popular Science, KUOW and GOOD. The Pollinator Pathway has been exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum and the Olympic Sculpture Park, and Bergmann lectures frequently to design and culture audiences, including at the University of Washington, the Henry Art Gallery, the Seattle Art Museum, Stanford University and TEDx.

The Pollinator Pathway is a long-term project founded by Sarah Bergmann in 2008 that reframes our relationship to the planet. Based in design thinking and crossing ecology, planning and culture, the project is a physical response to the global transformation of landscape in the Age of Humankind. Its vision is to connect fragmented landscapes between cities, farms and wilderness via projects that, in cities, combine ecological design and underutilized space.

The Pollinator Pathway is a practical application of design, but it is above all a response to the recognition that humanity is a major global scale ecosystem. Described as a New Audubon project and a living essay, the project extends to Bergmann’s work and ideas in institutions and talks as well as to the outsized modern natural history book that accompanies the project, which explores the broad subjects—from planetary history, systems, human culture to ecology—that this large-scale and long-term work touches.

University of Washington Campus Architecture Tour: "Building a Polyvalent Campus, 1895-2015"

Our tour will survey the architectural history of the University of Washington Campus. The University of Washington was founded in 1861 on a site now occupied by the Fairmont Olympic Hotel downtown, but was relocated to its current site to provide additional space in the early 1890s. State funds in the 1890s through about 1909 were meager, and the number of completed buildings few. In 1909, the Regents of the UW agreed to allow the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition (AYPE) to stage its fair on largely vacant university land. The construction of the AYPE made an indelible imprint on the campus, leaving behind an organizational framework still relevant today. The first large building spurt came between 1917 and the mid-1930s. The main quadrangles were planned and built at this time, setting the collegiate Gothic tone for the campus. Building diminished during the Depression and war-time era, only to resume with a second immense surge in the 1950-1970  period. Contextualism held sway during the 1980s and 1990s while the period after 2000 has been  a third building explosion centered in the sciences. During this 120-year span, the campus has grown from one of ethnic/gender exclusivity and siloed departments to one of multi-culturalism and interdisciplinarity, with disparate groups blending and synthesizing academic and social interests.

Maximum Participants: 10

Fee: $10

Accessibility: Walking, standing, navigating city streets.

Transportation: Coach to and from the Westin and the University of Washington. Walking around the campus. Meet your tour wrangler around the North Tower escalators on the Westin's Lobby Level before the 10:30 AM departure.

Architectural Highlights of Capitol Hill: Cal Anderson Park, Bullitt Center, and Steven Holl's Chapel of St. Ignatius

This tour will introduce you to a variety of architectural highlights in the south Capitol Hill neighborhood bordering the Central District, one of Seattle's most populated areas undergoing a high-level of transformation.

Take a walk through Cal Anderson Park in the heart of Capitol Hill. Seattle's oldest Olmsted-designed park underwent a well-received renovation in 2005. This 7-acre park houses play areas for children, a wading pool, sports field, and now lidded reservoir among welcoming promenades. Water remains a defining element clearly stated by the reflecting pool and sculptural water feature.

From Cal Anderson walk over to The Bullitt Center, an ultra-green high performance building. You will be hosted by Deborah Sigler of the University of Washington's Center for Integrated Design housed within the Bullitt.

Round out this tour with a visit to the Chapel of St. Ignatius on the urban campus of Seattle University. Originally conceived as “seven different 'bottles of light' in a stone box” this is a famous architectural work of Steven Holl.

Asian Art Museum, Volunteer Park and the Frye Art Museum

On this tour, we will begin by visiting the Frye Art Museum, founded in 1952 by Seattle philanthropists Charles and Emma Frye. The Fryes gifted their collection of European art to the people of Seattle, in the belief that access to exceptional and contemporary creative artwork should always be free, and for all. We will tour Cris Bruch's exhibition Others Who Were Here, as well as tour the Frye's Founding Collection in an exhibition titled Frye Salon.

We will then re-board the coach for a short drive to the Asian Art Museum located in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill. After seeing the museum's collections, we will explore Volunteer Park.

While at AAM, housed within the 1933 Art Moderne building designed by Carl F. Gould, we will tour the exhibitions Paradox of Place: Contemporary Korean Art as well as Ai Weiwei: Colored Vases. There will also be an opportunity to view the continually rotating permanent collection on view. We will also have the opportunity to tour the McCaw Foundation Library for Asian Art and the Ann P. Wyckoff Teacher Resource Center.

In the historic Olmsted Volunteer Park, we will view the sculpture Black Sun by Isamu Noguchi, as we walk amongst the park's beautiful landscaping surrounding the reservoir built in 1901. Participants will have the opportunity to visit the nearby Conservatory which features flowering plants from all areas of the world, or walk up the 107 steps in the 1906 Water Tower to the observation deck with its 360° views.

Maximum Participants: 12

Chinatown/International District, Wing Luke Museum, and Locke Library Tour

Join us for an exciting tour of one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods: the Chinatown/International District (known to locals simply as the ID). The ID promotes itself as a welcoming place for immigrants and those looking to make a better life for themselves. Nowhere else can you find so many different cultures coming together to form one neighborhood. In 1979, the neighborhood was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience will be our host for a tour of the Governor Gary Locke Library & Community Heritage Center, and a walking tour of the Chinatown/International District neighborhood.  The Historic Hotel Tour allows visitors to follow the footsteps of Asian Pacific American pioneers. During our visit to the Locke Library, we'll learn about the role the library plays in the community and hear about their innovative oral history program. Finally, through our walking tour of the historic ID neighborhood, we'll learn about the facts, myths and legends of the area, and learn more about the diverse contributions of Asian cultures to Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
